Dr Jody Winter recently contributed to a successful ERASMUS+ International Credit Mobility bid that will allow Microbiology staff and students from NTU and Makerere University, Uganda to take part in exchange visits to each other's universities. The project, funded for the next 3 years, will see NTU and Makerere students taking part in summer research placements in Uganda and the UK, respectively. This will be a unique opportunity for UK-based and African students to experience different educational environments and to work on projects that will contribute to strengthening research links between microbiologists at Makerere University and NTU.
The NTU Microbiology team, led by Dr Jody Winter, will also support joint research projects on plants with antimicrobial activities between NTU, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Mount Kenya University and Brackenhurst Kenya Ltd as part of a second funded ERASMUS+ International Credit Mobility project.
We are delighted to contribute to these projects and look forward to welcoming African microbiologists to NTU in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future.
