DR. MAINGA HAMALUBA

Head Of Clinical Research


Biography

My responsibilities include providing leadership and coordination for clinical research and trials as well as monitoring, project management, database support and sponsorship for KWTRP investigator-led trials. I trained as a Paediatrician in Oxford and first started working in clinical trials over 15 years ago. My research career started in Oxford followed by a 6-month Wellcome Trust visiting fellowship to the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust programme in 2006 and a return to Kenya in 2016. My work in Kathmandu, Nepal and Oxfordshire focused on the population biology and vaccinology of Streptococcus pneumoniae in pre-school children. With a team of Nepali scientists, we conducted a vaccine trial in infants which informed and led to the introduction of the 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccination schedule in Nepalese infants.
