Successful PhD Defences

Department Chair with the PhD Graduates

The Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Nairobi is delighted to announce the successful PhD defence of Dr. Winnie Mutai, Dr. Susan Odera and Dr. Moses Masika. The three researchers successfully defended their theses in the last 3 months. These three researchers have made a major contribution to the field of Medical Microbiology and Immunology. Their research has helped to provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, One Health and the development of new vaccines and diagnostic tools, and the use of immunology in disease prevention.

Their research will help to improve the delivery of healthcare in Kenya and beyond. It will also have a major impact on global health, as it is likely to lead to the development of new and more effective treatments for a wide range of infectious diseases. The Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology is proud to have supported the research of Dr Mutai, Dr Odera and Dr Masika, and we congratulate them on their success.
