According to the MOU between Seeding Labs and School of Biological Sciences, each academic staff member is expected to examine the equipments in their area and then write a proposal in collaboration with an American Researcher.  The Seeding Labs will facilitate linkage between the two researchers.

The equipments received will boost molecular biology and technology research in our country.

This initiative started at Kenyatta University and is going around the country one university at a time. It is great to receive the equipment, but the greatest challenge has just started. Will our professors wake up and get the equipment into good use or are we going to create another 'museum' like we have in the CBB? receiving donations is easy, thinking of great research ideas is hard.

let us hope for the best and Congratulations prof. Irungu for putting this effort together.
