"Dialogue with African Biotech Leaders" has been organised as a platform to provide exchange of ideas and discussions amongst African biotech leaders, with the intention to establish a pan-African biotech network.
Dialogue With African Biotech Leaders Series
The Dialogues will provide an environment for African biotech leaders to build relationships, exchange insights, and explore ideas for advancing the biotech sector in Africa. We hope these conversations help you gain insights into biotech challenges and strengths and promote the African biotech landscape within and beyond Africa.
Ep 1 - Introduction to Dialogue with African Biotech Leaders Series
The first episode discusses how a lot of the discovery-innovation that is happening in the rest of the world is driven by Africans. We definitely want to be able to have this network- this pan-African network, to have it create a way in which the diaspora knows how to engage the biotech ecosystem in Africa.
The second episode focuses on the opportunities for biotech in Africa as it is a growing field. It also touches on bottlenecks in biotech advancement, an example of this would be the mistrust of Africans in the scientific community. In the episode the panel also discusses the future of biotech in Africa.
