Arguably one of our most important objectives is to develop African scholarship and research infrastructure, and to increase Africa’s neuroscience clinical and research workforce. 

Through our unique honours program, and by supervising masters and PhD students, mentoring early- and mid-career researchers, delivering workshops and open online courses within and beyond UCT, and promoting a supportive research culture, we work to build research capacity locally and regionally, and grow the next generation of neuroscience researchers on both the clinical and basic neuroscience career tracks.
