3 Weeks - 3 Labs Rotation Program

This was the first training program introduced by CHRF to help aspiring scientists develop their skills in microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry. Starting in July 2022, over 100 trainees graduated from this program until July 2023. The constructive feedback we had received from our alumni helped us design a new hands-on program called, 'Laboratory Techniques in Infectious Diseases'.

Building Scientists for Bangladesh

Stream 3: Developing Skills

We believe that empowering, engaging, and educating the next generation of scientists is imperative to building a healthy and sustainable community. This means that the next generation of scientists must be provided with the necessary skills. Skills are required for employment opportunities, but also for sustaining interest in science, designing experiments and conducting research. In Bangladesh, while students are provided with the theoretical knowledge on important scientific techniques, not all universities have the capacity to provide hands-on training. With our third stream, we want to close that gap.

This stream is targeted towards undergraduate and postgraduate students of life sciences, who wish to receive training in hands-on laboratory and data analysis skills. We are leveraging our expertise in clinical research, diagnostics and genomics to build intellectual capacity within Bangladesh and create a model for capacity building and decentralization of research worldwide. We are partnering with both public and private universities to not only provide intensive training, but also build infrastructure for genomic research in Bangladesh. Our training programs range from 2-3 weeks in duration, where interested participants can choose to specialize in genomics, microbiology, or biochemistry. All participants are provided with a certificate upon successful completion.

Make a donation. Help build scientists for Bangladesh

If you want to sponsor CHRF's program, 'Building Scientists for Bangladesh', you can select from three of our streams! You can sponsor a school to set up science camps (Stream 1),  help bring young girls studying in grades 7-12 and living in remote areas of Bangladesh to visit our research laboratory in Dhaka (Stream 2), or help us build our training facility to provide hands-on genomics training to undergraduate and postgraduate students of life sciences (Stream 3).
