CApIC-ACE was established based on the urgent need to build a critical mass of indigenous African scientists with the necessary bioinformatics, molecular biology, and information & communications engineering knowledge and skills to drive and sustain impactful researches in the areas of malaria, prostate and breast cancer as well as cloud & high performance computing as related to personalized medicine, in collaboration with academic, clinical and industrial institutions in Nigeria, West Africa, Africa, Germany, France, US and UK. Our collaborators have a track record of successful research, training, innovation and technology transfer.

CApIC-ACE is built on the existing infrastructure and personnel as well as externally-funded research projects for malaria and FEDGEN (NIH H3ABioNet, NIH WASLITBRe and German Science Foundation (aka DFG) being run by CUBRe) and cancer (CaPTC) at Covenant University. It hopes to evolve a Federated Genomic (FEDGEN) cloud infrastructure (with in-memory computing and cloud AI capabilities) customized to process and analyze indigenous genomic data to address African health issues including health education, medication efficiency and early disease diagnosis.
