The Royal Society Pfizer Award recognises research scientists who are making an innovative contribution to the biological sciences, including basic medical science, which contributes significantly to capacity building in Africa.
In 2015, to mark the 10th anniversary of the Royal Society Pfizer Award, the programme has been expanded to allow two awards.
The Early Career Award will be presented to Dr Gordon Awandare, University of Ghana, and the Advanced Award will be presented to Professor Jean-Jacques Muyembe-Tamfum, Institut National de Recherche Biomédicale.
This one-day seminar, held as part of the Award, will celebrate Dr Awandare's and Professor Muyembe-Tamfum's work, and that of past winners.
