Call for Applications for Masters Support in Reducing Stroke Risk Factors - Deadline: 8th August 2022

The Makerere University College of Health Sciences & Case Western Reserve University, partnering with Mbarara University of Science and Technology are implementing a five-year project, “A targeted self-management Intervention for Reducing Stroke Risk Factors in High-Risk Ugandans”.

The program is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). One aspect of the program is to provide advanced degree training to qualified candidates with an interest in pursuing clinical and research careers in Stroke. Trainees will be expected to develop and maintain a productive career devoted to Stroke Research, Clinical Practice, and Prevention. We are aiming at growing Research Capacity in Stroke Risk Reduction and training the next generation of Stroke health in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Project is soliciting for applications for a Master's Research thesis support in stroke-related research at Makerere University and Mbarara University.

A soft copy should be submitted to the Training Coordinator, Reducing Stroke Project.


The closing date for the receipt of applications is 8th August 2022.
