Call for Papers: Special Issue on the Grand Challenges for Global Health

— archivado en:

The Lancet Student, Reino Unido

The Lancet Student is announcing plans for a special issue featuring the experience of undergraduate and graduate students who have taken part in the Grand Challenges for Global Health (GCGH) initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Modelled after the grand challenges of mathematician David Hilbert, the GCGH initiative has sought to create new tools to improve global health by investing in fundamental research and facilitating partnerships across scientific disciplines. 43 grants were awarded to scientists from 33 countries, for a combined estimated value of US$440 million.

The special issue will provide a platform for participants to describe, in their own words, their experience with the Challenges for Global Health GCGH initiative.

Students are invited to reflect, in 1500 words or less, on their involvement with the research initiative over the past 5 years by assessing what it has implied in terms of access to resources, networks, learning and development opportunities, etc. Writers should additionally describe their pathway to a career in research and emphasise how they came to be involved with the Grand Challenges for Global Health.

Deadline for submission: December 1st, 2010

Those considering submitting an article should contact The Lancet Student for complete instructions on how to prepare and send their manuscript. In your email, please use the subject line “GCGH special issue” and include a few sentences about yourself.
