Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​Centre for C​​​ardio-metabolic Research in Africa (CARMA)​

Netw​orking and Collaboration

During the middle of 2020, CARMA and the Biomedical Research and Innovation Platform (BRIP) (SAMRC) reached an agreement whereby BRIP became an allied member of CARMA. 

​Network and collaboration is a key mission indicator for CARMA. We have an extensive collaborative network that includes the following partners:

  • Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia)
  • Cape Peninsula University of Technology (SA)
  • Hasselt University (Belgium)
  • Jimenez Diaz Foundation Health Research Institute (Spain)
  • Mayo Clinic (USA)
  • Medical University of Graz (Austria)
  • North West University (SA)
  • Polytechnic University of Marche (Italy)
  • University of Cape Town (SA)
  • University of Geneva (Switzerland)
  • University of Nairobi (Kenya)
  • University of Reunion (France)
  • Walter Sisulu University (SA)
  • University of Colorado (USA)

Part of our networking also allows for various student and staff exchanges with some of our collaborating partners. For example, an ERASMUS+ grant allowed for student exchanges between CARMA and the Medical University of Graz in 2022 and vice versa in 2023.
