    Hi I'm a pharmacist, currently working as a regulatory affairs company pharmacist in Nairobi.
    I just completed my Msc. Clinical trials and hoping to transition to clin.trials research. I'm excited to join the GHT EA regional forum. Most of the members work in research so hopefully we will get to learn from their experiences in their various areas of work. The discussions should be brain storming and exciting. I'm looking forward to that.
    I'm also hoping to make networks and connections that probably will help me in my transition and overall experience in the clinical trials field.

    Hello there. A while ago I had an absolutely fortuitous moment to be introduced to some lovely people with a vision for research in Rwanda. Vincent Mutabazi, Leon Mutesa and Clarisse Musanabaganwa. They are interested in collaborating with teams within the larger East African region in clinical research. Feel free to contact them. They are senior members of the MRC team in Rwanda tasked with improving research. They should be members of GHT EA by now.

  • mosesalobo Moses Alobo 5 Aug 2013

    GSK EA is seeking for a trainer who can train site personnel in Ethiopia on ICH GCP (preferably using local language – Amharic if possible). If you know of any institution (small or large) with experience of training and can meet the requirements above (including issuance of training certificate), please let me know. The training would occur sometime next year closer to when sites are anticipated to start recruiting into the studies.

  • mosesalobo Moses Alobo 5 Aug 2013

    Short of putting out an advert GSK EA is looking for recommendations for an experienced clinical trial monitor for a study with sites in Ethiopia. It will be based in Kenya with frequent travel to Ethiopia.
    The job includes SDV and site management. Knowledge of Amharic would be a great advantage but nevertheless experience in Ethiopian regulatory trials will be a big advantage.
    Short of the above we will appreciate a well trained Clinical Trial Monitor with good Trial Management credentials.
    Any recommendations that have come to your mind?
