Eight innovators from seven African countries have been announced as the inaugural awardees of the Grand Challenges (GC) Africa drug discovery programme. They will be involved in research that will advance the discovery of new drugs to prevent, treat and cure diseases endemic to Africa.
A feature on Professor Kelly Chibale and H3D has been published in the UK-based Financial Times, one of the world's leading news organisations. The article can be found here: https://www.ft.com/content/c3e47c32-c8c2-11e9-af46-b09e8bfe60c0
The generous donation will be used to establish an initial five-year Neville Isdell Chair in African-centric Drug Discovery and Development at H3D. H3D’s director and founder Professor Kelly Chibale will hold the Chair, which includes the directorship of H3D.
