Biography:

I have experience working in both research and medical diagnostics labs in resource-limited settings. My vast experience can be helpful to research teams in Validate whose diseases areas may require designing and planning of studies, especially recruitment of patients, initial lab analysis, biological sample taking, logistics and operationalizing study protocols in resource-limited settings. This will be very helpful because diseases like TB and leprosy among others are found in developing parts of the world with inefficient and well-resourced healthcare delivery system.
