ONLINE COVER Wellcome to Africa. Movement through the departures gate at Heathrow airport in London, shown in this week's cover photo, conjures the anticipation of international travel to fresh locales. In an Editorial, Kay describes a trip abroad planned by the Wellcome Trust, a U.K.-based foundation that supports biomedical research. The foundation will relocate–from London to Nairobi–its initiatives for training the next generation of African scientific leaders, so that research and funding decisions can be made locally by domestic innovators.
