Prof. Bazeyo will act as the Principal Investigator (PI) of the project.
Makerere University Vice chancellor, prof. Barnabas Nawangwe congratulated the lecturer towards reaching this milestone.
This UGX 185 billion grant win by @WilliamBazeyo is unprecedented. It’s the largest single grant win by an academician in the history of Uganda. What is important about this grant is that it is to benefit the entire country. Well done Prof. Bazeyo, you have set the bar high! pic.twitter.com/l6lceOke2E
