Based out of our Africa Research Station in Kenya, we work toward the practical use of simultaneous detection of multiple infectious diseases.

This seminar, with cooperation from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), which seeks to help support the expansion of innovative research in Africa, and members of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), was held for African diplomats.

From a total of 21 different countries including Ethiopia, Sudan, and Kenya, a total of 28 people, 12 of them being ambassadors of their countries, attended the seminar.
