Supporting capacity building and training across the Asia-Pacific
The Centre for Pathogen Genomics has established a robust framework to support capacity building and training across the Asia-Pacific region, including dedicated training facilities and frameworks, technical experts to support training delivery, and access to a multidisciplinary team to support a breadth of learning outcomes.
Fleming Fund Fellowship Program
The Fleming Fund Fellowships offer a program of on-the-job training, mentoring and professional development to improve the capability and capacity of in-country institutions and staff to respond to the threat of antimicrobial resistance across human and animal health.
Fleming Fund Bioinformatics Fellowships
The Centre has supported Fellows in the field of Bioinformatics from Bhutan and Pakistan.
