An acceleration programme aimed at supporting women in biosciences was launched on 21 February 2017, during the SANBio Annual Event 2017, by the NEPAD Southern Africa Network for Biosciences (SANBio) with support from the BioFISA II programme.
SANBio is a platform for shared biosciences research, development and innovation to address health and nutrition issues of Southern Africa and it is hosted by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in South Africa.
During our recent visit to Mozambique, we met with Dr Claudia Baule (DVM, PhD). Her enthusiasm towards biosciences presented an excellent chance to interview her more closely on her career as a scientist as well as her views on the role of biosciences not only in Mozambique but in the whole Southern Africa region. Due to the length of the interview, the below is a shortened version, and the full article can be found here.
