Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

Registration is available here.

Dr Jacqueline Kyosiimire-Lugemwa is an Immunologist based in Uganda. She studies the Virologic and Immunologic correlates of protection against HIV disease progression in Uganda; Microbial translocation, Inflammation and T-cell activation in HIV ART-treated patients; and the effect of pre-existing immune status and endemic infections on Hepatitis B vaccine mediated immune responses among HIV negative adult Ugandans. In 2018, she got a Visiting Scholarship with Quantitative Biosciences Institute at the University of California San Francisco to learn new technologies in science and generate collaborations to enhance her Research career. Currently, she is working on a project to identify key Antiviral Therapeutic natural products against SARS COV2 using in-vitro studies at Uganda Virus Research Institute. This is supported by Government of Uganda with collaborative support from UCSF.
