Anne Kapaata

Trainee Type: 

Anne Kapaata has always been interested in saving lives through science. Motivated by a father who was a laboratory scientist, she did her BSc in Biomedical Laboratory technology and later advanced with a Master of Science in biomedical laboratory science and management. Her interest in HIV started way back after school when she joined the Medical Research Council Unit on AIDS (MRC/UVRI) in Entebbe, Uganda, where she has worked on different HIV studies for a decade now. Working at the MRC has inspired her to continue this HIV career path with hope that one day she will be among the scientists that find a solution to HIV disease through vaccination.
