UCT's Bioethics Centre's new International Research Ethics Network for Southern Africa (IRENSA), funded by the United States National Institutes of Health's Fogarty International Centre got off to a good start in February.

The first group of 13 scholars admitted to the programme represent research ethics committees from many universities, technikons and private groups in South Africa as well as from Kenya, Zambia and Botswana. The programme faculty is multidisciplinary and is representative of six institutions in four countries.
