CApIC African Center of Excellence
Applied Computing and Communication
Covenant University - Nigeria

The African Center of Excellence CApIC (Applied Informatics and Communication) domiciled at Covenant University is an ACE-IMPACT created in 2018.

CApIC-ACE was established based on the urgent need to build a critical mass of indigenous African scientists with the knowledge and skills in bioinformatics, molecular biology and information and communication engineering to conduct and support impactful research in the fields of malaria, prostate and breast cancer, as well as cloud and high-performance computing for personalized medicine, in collaboration with academic, clinical and industrial institutions in Nigeria, West Africa, Africa, Germany, France, the USA and the UK.

Its mission is to be a center of excellence in teaching and research, with a state-of-the-art information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure, dedicated to building local capacity through training in bioinformatics, ICT and molecular biology to reduce the burden of disease in Africa.
