Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Dear Colleagues

I hope you are keeping well and making progress on your various projects. As for me, I have made minimal progress this year, as it took more time than I had anticipated to get all necessary approvals before commencing data collection. The good news is that my PhD proposal under which my bursary project is nested, has finally received the green light from the postgraduate academic committee at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal.  Nevertheless, before i embark on data collection and other project-related activities, I still need to get ethics approval,  which I am positive will be in place during the first quarter of 2016. In the meantime, I am working on a review article on phylogenetic research and hopefully the manuscript should be ready before the end of the year.

I trust that I will have more exciting updates in the coming year. 

Happy holidays

Hi Farirai, Thanks for sharing your update! Congratulations on getting your PhD proposal approved. Good luck with obtaining the remaining ethics approval that you require. Let us know if you need any help with that. Do also keep us updated on the progress of your review article, and remember you can always share a draft of your manuscript with us if you'd like some input/advice.

Hi Farirai, its nice hearing that you are making progress with our project. Getting approval  is very involving but all the same you will get over it. Wishing you all all the best as you  move ahead.

Congratulations Farirai! It's good to hear about the progress you are making towards your project, as Elvis said, no matter how involving it may be, you finally get your approval, and it may seem the same with you but you will eventually get it. I am wishing you good luck to that, i hope next year will be exciting to you. Wishing you a Merry Xmas and a Prosperous New Year.
