The historic inaugural symposium was held on October 12 –14 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Last week Professor Dr. Cato T. Laurencin had the honor of opening the First U.S.-Africa Frontiers of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Symposium in Nairobi, Kenya.
Laurencin served as a distinguished member of the oversight committee for the symposium and represented the United States at the meeting.
“This is a project I have been committed to for a number of years and it is wonderful to see this occur. I want to thank and congratulate Dr. Felix Dakora (African Academy of Sciences) and Dr. John Hildebrand (National Academy of Sciences) for their leadership,” stated Laurencin.
This inaugural symposium was held on October 12 – 14, and was a partnership between The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) and the African Academy of Sciences (AAS).
