Basic Scientists are the foundation of biomedical research world-wide. Scientists enable understanding of fundamental disease processes, their pathogenesis and diagnosis of vast majority of diseases and conditions afflicting millions of people and crops round the globe. However, the challenge lies in the transference of this discovery into treating diseases in humans and crops using these methods and then using knowledge gained to improve health care policy.

To be able to do the latter it requires scientists in various disciplines of life sciences such as medical sciences, microbiology, biochemistry, mathematics, engineering, physical and computer sciences etc. The ultimate goal of translational research is for the improvement of human health which is beneficial to all including the non-scientists. However in Africa, part of the challenges faced stem from scientific, cultural, institutional and policy, making it difficult for basic scientists to collaborate and conduct translational research.

The idea of the conference is to bring together scientists from Germany and Nigeria interested in basic, applied and translational research.
