The Vice-Chancellor's Innovation Awards 2020, announced in late July, celebrate research-led innovation at all University levels that is having societal or economic impact.

Now a series of online Innovation Conversations, taking place throughout September, offer the chance to hear more from each of the winners, as well as ask questions about their award-winning research.

The fifth Innovation Conversation in this series begins at 1pm on Wednesday 30 September 2020. This webinar features winners of the Teamwork category, SEREN, led by Professor Anna Schuh, who will be joined by Dr Clara Chamba.

SEREN is a social enterprise based at the Muhimbili University for Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania that aims to build local capacity for precise, low-cost, low-maintenance, patient-near DNA diagnostics solutions to prevent the needless deaths of thousands of children and young adults with blood diseases in Sub-Saharan Africa.
