I am sorry for my late response. I was away for some days. Our division of
human genetics and genome research, National Research center (NRC) of Egypt,
offers training in all specialties of human genetics including clinical
genetics. My department of Medical Molecular Genetics had more than 3
training programs/year in molecular genetics for Egyptian as well as
Mideastern students. We are currently corresponding with a young Sudanese
researcher who wishes to start an activity on disorders of sex development
in Sudan. We are corresponding with the BecA [Biosciences network for East
and Central Africa, NEPAD] director about the possibility of securing the
funds for the training.
As I might have stated before in Addis Ababa, we in the NRC are strong
advocates for africa's development and willing to share effectively through
capacity building and training. In other words our clinics and labs are open
for all African colleagues who wish to further their experiences in human
genetics as well as other fields.
Thank you for your efforts regarding the joining of AFSHG to the federation.
