A considerable amount of interest is mounting in African capabilities for conducting various kinds of scientific research and enterprise, for example, the push to have vaccine manufacturing facilities and expertise be present on the continent. However, on a global scale, there is still a significant amount of consideration that needs to be given to African leaders, researchers and policy makers as the landscape shifts towards a broader involvement of Africans within the scientific realm, and as adjustments are made in recognition of the contributions and collaborations with African scientists that have been instrumental in fields ranging from agriculture to molecular medicine. By bringing together experts in their respective fields, this panel seeks to provide a platform to discuss the ways African regulatory landscapes can begin to assume form in anticipation of an accelerated technological future on the continent.
