What is the best way to encourage science in Africa?

Some African scientists come to the United States to train and then return to their home countries to teach and perform research.

James Ntambi took a different approach – after receiving his Ph.D. he remained in the United States and now leads a lab at the University of Wisconsin, where he trains African scientists and teaches Americans what life is like in Uganda.
