See our most urgently needed equipment that will help fuel the research of our Instrumental Access 2018 awardees.
Instead of returning to the University of Ibadan (UI) in Nigeria after attending Positively Instrumental in Boston last March, Instrumental Access awardee Dr. Aina Adeogun took a detour to Norway.
Her destination: the lab of longtime collaborator (and fellow Nigerian) Dr. Augustine Arukwe at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim.
We are thrilled to announce the May 2018 Instrumental Access Call for Applications is now open!
We are thrilled to introduce the newest additions to the Seeding Labs community: the Instrumental Access 2018 awardees! Here are a few facts about the 2018 group…
For pioneering programs that integrate participation in Instrumental Access with their core business, Thermo Fisher Scientific was presented with a 2018 Global Visionary Award at Positively Instrumental on March 21.
Sixteen outstanding research labs in developing countries around the world have been awarded scientific resources and equipment through Seeding Labs’ 2018 Instrumental Access program. Seeding Labs announced the 2018 Instrumental Access awardees at its third annual “Positively Instrumental” event held at Takeda Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge, Mass., on March 21…
Instrumental Access is a unique model for delivering specialized material aid to scientists around the world—and we have evidence that it works. Where does that evidence come from?
We measure, of course! So what’s unique about measurement (or, in nonprofit lingo, metrics and evaluation) at Seeding Labs?
What happens when talented scientists have access to the tools they need? They use them to solve problems, train the next generation of scientists, and strengthen scientific institutions…
A garbage dump may seem like an unconventional setting for research, but Dr. Aneisha Collins-Fairclough (above) of the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) sees enormous scientific potential. Since receiving an Instrumental Access shipment of equipment from Seeding Labs in 2014, Dr. Collins-Fairclough has been harvesting the microbiological riches of the Riverton City Dump, Jamaica’s largest solid waste disposal site. She collected water samples with her students from the dump’s leachate ponds as well as the adjacent Duhaney River, which runs through residential communities before draining to—and potentially polluting—Kingston Harbor.
Garden City University College (GCUC) is training new generations of health care workers for a country that sorely needs them. To fill a gap in Ghana’s health care system, GCUC introduced a medical laboratory technology program in 2013. However, the school lacked the necessary equipment to give students the hands-on training they needed to be prepared to work in medical and diagnostic labs upon graduation. In 2016, with support from USAID, Seeding Labs sent GCUC a shipment of Instrumental Access equipment. It contained nearly 3 tons of scientific tools and supplies donated by 31 US-based corporations, universities, and research institutes.
