The Lancet Commission on the future of health in sub-Saharan Africa concluded that Africa's research transformation will only happen through investment, collaboration and partnerships. Here we describe the research capacity building partnership developed between the Mycetoma Research Centre in Khartoum, Sudan, and the Centre for Global Health Research at Brighton & Sussex Medical School (BSMS), Brighton, UK. This partnership, supported by the BSMS–National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Global Health Research Unit (GHRU) on Neglected Tropical Diseases and the NIHR Research Innovation for Global Health (RIGHT)-funded Social Sciences for Severe Stigmatising Skin Conditions (5S) Foundation, uses the multidisciplinary, translational model originally used to study podoconiosis, another highly neglected tropical condition, and applies this to the conundrum that is mycetoma.
