Image of the Week: Science Makes You Happy

24 Oct, 2014

science makes you happy (Pharrell Williams) from KEMRI WELLCOME TRUST RES. PRO on Vimeo.

This week we’re taking a departure from our usual static image of the week to bring you a moving image of happiness!

As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the KEMRI-Wellcome Research Programme in Kenya, the team wanted to express their happiness. What better way to do that than by joining in the craze of creating videos to accompany Pharrell’s upbeat track “Happy”?

“It was quite a task getting guys to loosen up” says KEMRI-Wellcome’s Cynthia Mauncho, “but because it included all the programme staff we approached it in a fun easy-going way and the results are fantastic”. (We agree!)

The 25th anniversary celebrations are in full flow today and Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta, will be joining in the festivities and touring the labs at the centre. There is an exhibition telling the story KEMRI-Wellcome’s history and the new Mbuyuni Training Complex will be officially opened.

We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on 25 years of excellent research that has led to 75 PhDs, changed policy and helped improve health in Africa. Here’s to a very happy future!
