My vision for the future of research at UP

My vision for the future of research at UP and in Africa involves innovative thinking, translation of complex issues into everyday conversation, and science that makes a difference in people’s lives. Researchers and practitioners working in partnership must bridge the gap between the lab and the field, encouraging evidence-based practice and practice-driven research.
