The International center for advanced research and training (ICART)

The International Center for Advanced Research and Training (ICART) was established in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo in 2013. ICART focuses on research to address gender based violence and clinical health issues. 

A joint initiative between our partners at Panzi Foundation DRC, the Evangelical University in Africa (UAE), and the University of Michigan, ICART aims to improve research capacity at Panzi by training physicians and staff on research methods, conducting ethical research on human subjects, management and analysis, scientific writing and presentations, and publication. Staff and faculty are gaining the skills necessary to become strong voices and leaders in the international research community, addressing the needs and future direction of DRC with data-driven, evidence-based recommendations for both the policy and philanthropic communities.

ICART is open to collaboration and partnerships with individuals and organizations. Our team is working hard to become the top regional research and training center in this region of Africa.
