Aja Saidy

Founder, Communication Director

During a project about malaria at gymnasium (college), I asked myself “why isn’t there still no cure for malaria when it kills so many people each year?”.

I am passionate about bringing development to Africa in the field of science, as well as creating more international collaboration between researchers in Africa and those abroad.
