Michuki is a Kenyan trained board-certified paediatrician and clinical researcher based at the KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research. Michuki’ s research interests include improving quality of care in the neonatal and paediatric hospital units. He previously led a project that assessed Inappropriate prescription of cough remedies among children hospitalised with respiratory illness in Kenya. He was also actively involved in conducting systematic reviews that informed the evidence for the national paediatric protocols. Since 2014, he has also been actively involved in setting up a neonatal clinical learning network, which is a collaboration involving the ministry of health and county hospitals. This collaboration now includes more than 15 neonatal units across several counties in Kenya. Michuki was also a coinvestigator on an ESRC funded project that was assessing infection prevention and control and antibiotic stewardship practices across 16 public hospitals in Kenya. This work formed the basis of his doctoral work at the university of Amsterdam.
