In this issue, we celebrate ten years of CARTA’s contribution to the development of a vibrant African academy. Who else to reflect on the decade better than a funder who has been with us all along? Besides, we delve into the aspect of going virtual and local and how CARTA adapted to the ‘new normal’ even as we marked the #CARTA@10 celebrations. Speaking of new, we introduce Cohort 10 fellows and the incoming CARTA Board Chairperson, Funke Fayehun who promises to “do more and go further.” Also, check out Jude Igumbor’s in-depth take on health research in Africa and catch up with one of CARTA’s latest graduates as she speaks to us on her captivating work on the intersection of design and health. Happy reading!
