Team Tumani Corrah Prize for Excellence’s story
Tumani's 70th birthday gives us all a wonderful opportunity to recognise his immense contributions as mentor and benefactor to many aspiring clinicians and scientists, particularly in The Gambia and West Africa.
He has helped so many! Please join us in raising at least £5,000 to establish a "Tumani Corrah Prize for Excellence" to be awarded to an AREF Fellow or Alumnus for outstanding achievement. The AREF Board will determine the scope of eligible achievements. They could, for example, include a major contribution by a Fellow to fundraising for AREF; an outstanding research publication catalysed by AREF support, or for establishing a sustainable mentoring scheme at their home research institution. The Award will be managed by the Africa Research Excellence Fund under the supervision of its Board. We aim to collect enough to award £1,000 each year for at least five years.
