This project aims to conduct a systematic analysis of cancer research done in the country. Using PubMed and other publicly available databases, we will characterize the type of research (molecular, epidemiological, clinical trials, translational, computational, surveys, etc.), the involvement of Kenyan researchers, and the source of funding. We hope this project’s outcome will provide a platform to spur discussion on the status of cancer research in Kenya and the funding landscape. Ultimately, we aim to influence public policy that will foster an enabling environment to spur cancer research in the country.
