New Wellcome Trust funding scheme called DELTAS-Africa. The website (http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/Funding/Biomedical-science/Funding-scheme...) states:

The vision of DELTAS Africa is to support the African-led development of world-class researchers and research leaders in Africa. This new generation of scientists will play a major part in shaping and driving a locally relevant health research agenda in Africa, contributing to improved health and development in the continent.

Take a look at the website link above. Perhaps your institution might be interested? Deadlines are:

  • Preliminary application deadline: 17.00 GMT, 2 October 2014
  • Invitation to submit a full application: 24 November 2014
  • Full application deadline: 17.00 GMT, 29 January 2015

Hello all,

Two articles of potential interest:

1) Using the Emanuel et al. Framework to Assess Ethical Issues Raised by a Biomedical Research Ethics Committee in South Africa, Joyce M. Tsoka-Gwegweni and Douglas R. Wassenaar, Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics 1–10, 2014.

2) Randomised controlled trials for Ebola: practical and ethical issues, Clement Adewamobo et al., The Lancet, published online Oct 10, 2014.

You can find PDFs of both articles on the e-MOPs website here (you must be signed into e-MOPs as a member to access these!):http://e-mops.ning.com/page/mop-reccommended-readings-december-2012

Dear All,

Those of you following this blog should have received an email already about the newest content up on e-MOPs. To the information in that email, I would like to add the following:

- The new Oxford Univeristy courses featured in the 'Courses' section of our website are all short-courses, organized by the Department of Continuing Education. You do *not* need to be a fully enrolled Oxford student to take any of these courses. So if any of the courses catch your interest, do look them up online.

- If any of you would like to add anything to the Summer School report, share comments, thoughts, or start a discussion, please do so using the 'comment' box on the page. We would love to hear from you!

Kind regards,
