A key focus of MORU is building scientific research capacity in Thailand and SE and South Asia. One way we do this is by hosting students in a world-class research environment. In this video, you’ll hear from some of our current students about why living and studying in SE Asia and at MORU is such a great experience.
The Three Minute Thesis competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD/DPhil) students at MORU and OUCRU. The competition encourages and trains students to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to our non-specialist audience of invited high school students. Enjoy the highlights from our 2019 competition
The School Leavers Attachment Scheme (SLAS) selects talented students from Kilifi, Kenya, who have just completed high school with excellent grades to go on a three-month attachment. Students gain valuable work experience in laboratories, hospital wards, computer departments and community interaction. This experience gives students an advantage over most other university first-years.
This video tells the story of Jacob Kazungu, one of our School Leavers’ Attachment Scheme Students. Following the attachment, Jacob pursued a career in science and has now published several 1st author articles, and has been awarded with a Wellcome Master's Fellowship.
The School Engagement Programme was established by KEMRI with the support of the Kilifi County Education Office. It aims at promoting an interest in science and science related careers among students and to promote mutual understanding between members of the community and researchers.
