Scientific meeting at KWTRP, Kilifi

This year’s scientific conference was well attended and a colorful occasion. The meeting coincided with KEMRI - Wellcome Trust 25 year’s celebrations and also the President’s visit to Kilifi to commission the Mbuyuni Training Complex.

Prof. Elizabeth Bukusi of KEMRI officially opened the meeting. Equally present were the two new Directors, Dr Philip Bejon, Director for KEMRI - Wellcome Trust and Dr Benjamin Tsofa, the new centre Director.

The meeting had notable guests present from well-known international scientists in health research, respected African researchers and motivational speakers who inspired the upcoming crop of our young researchers.

It was an opportune time to network, share and interact with new and interesting on-going research work and projects.
