WHAT WE DO
WAMBIAN aims to provide researchers in West Africa with access to advanced equipment, training, and expertise, as well as promote collaboration and interdisciplinary research. Through this, the network aims to help build the capacity of the research community and promote the use of these techniques in the region.
ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT
Many research institutions in West Africa lack the necessary equipment and facilities for advanced microscopy and bioimage analysis. By establishing a network of researchers and institutions, WAMBIAN can help to share resources and provide access to equipment that might not otherwise be available.
TRAINING AND EXPERTISE
The use of advanced microscopy and bioimage analysis techniques requires specialized training and expertise. By providing training and support through its network, WAMBIAN can help to build capacity in the region and increase the number of researchers who are able to use these techniques effectively.
By promoting collaboration and the sharing of resources among researchers in West Africa, WAMBIAN can help to facilitate interdisciplinary research and promote the exchange of ideas and knowledge
ACCESS TO FUNDING
Often, the lack of the right equipment and expertise is the main reason for the lack of research in a specific field. WAMBIAN by providing the necessary equipment and expertise will help researchers to access funding opportunities and provide more opportunities for research and collaboration.
