Congratulations to Dr Wilber Sabiiti who has been selected to participate in the new Wellcome Trust programme for researchers; International Funders’ Award in Management Skills. Out of the many applicants, Wilber was one of only 10 researchers who were selected to participate, based on their Wilber-demonstrates-accurate-pipettingmotivation and commitment to undertake the programme, and will be one of the first researchers in the world to have the International Funders’ Award Certificate.

The award is run in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Medical Research Council, Institut Pasteur and BBSRC and its key objective is to increase productivity of research teams and, therefore, increase the chance of success in future grant applications. Modules will include: managing your research project, budgeting, writing scientific papers and reports, presentation and communication skills and recruiting the right person.

Good luck with the programme Wilber!
