Qualifications

Cancer Diagnosis and Allergy detection

I have attracted the 4th Annual General VC research funding (2006) to work on Esophageal cancer, which is one of the topmost non-HIV related cancer in men in the region. I also attracted funding from National Council Science Technology that guided the prognosis and treatment for women with Breast cancer. This initiated an Immunohistochemistry diagnostic laboratory for various cancers at MTRH. I have attracted NIH funding for cancer diagnosis in children with Burkitts Lymphoma and Wilms tumor (kidney cancer). I recently got NIH funding for determination of HIV viral load using mobile phone technology.

I have supervised 20 masters students and 2 PhD students. I have 49 publications in refereed national and international journals. I have attended and had oral presentation and poster presentations at various national and international conferences.
