1 MEPI Development of Clinical and Translational Research Capacity Dr. Carla Carrilho Dr. Constance Benson Dr. Davey Smith Activities in course

2 Faculty Research Selection Process 1. Identified focal points in each department of UEM/FoM to coordinate research. These focal points will constitute a core group of people to begin research development Dep Medicine – Dr Albertino Damasceno Deps Surgery and Orthopedics – Dr America Assane Dep Gynecology/obstetrics – Dr Mario Samussidine Dep Pediatrics – Dr Eugenia Macassa Lab Services – Drs Mamudo Ismail/Carla Carrilho (Pathology); Drs Emilia Noorrmaomed/irene Langa (Parasitology); Dr Tomas Zimba (Microbiology) Dep Public health/Epidemiology – MISAU – Dr Carlos Funzamo Administration issues – Dra Clelia/ Olga Santo

3 2. Initial Research Priority Areas of importance to Mozambique were jointly identified 1. Communicable Diseases HIV and Opportunistic Infections Malaria-surveillance for resistance Cholera TB (for example new diagnostic tests, new drugs to improve treatment) Fungal, viral and parasitic diseases Rheumatic fever 2. Non-communicable Diseases HTA, stroke ( also applicable to HIV-infected and uninfected) Maternal mortality: including hemorrhage, obstructed labor, in HIV mothers, preeclampsia Trauma Surgical complications in HIV infected patients Surgical outcomes research (urban vs rural) Surgical related nosocomial infections Cancer: cervical (vaccine trial?), breast (receptor status), KS, liver, esophageal, prostate Neonatal deaths of unclear etiology

4 3. Identified specific research projects on the areas listed above, preferentially integrated (clinical epidemiological laboratorial) - for pairing with a UCSD counterpart – these will form the beginning of the project teams; other pre- and post-graduate trainees at UEM or HCM could join project teams that have been developed Dep Medicine – 8Lab Parasitology – 3 Dep Pediatrics – 7Lab Pathology – 3 (1 with TB Lab) Dep Surgery/Orthopedics – 4 Lab Microbiology Dep Gynecology/Obstetrics - 2 In the last meeting each focal point from each department presented draft of project proposals. These proposals need further discussion first at level of the department/coordinator group. After that it will be presented to UCSD mentors to pairing with a UCSD counterpart - formation of research mentoring teams

5 - A program for a didactic short course on “Introduction to research methodology” was designed (48 hours, 2 afternoons/week, 6h/week – proposed to initiated in April/ Two courses/year Dr Carlos Funzamo Residents from all specialties Transversal activity 4. Development of research training plans

6 5. Development Laboratory capacities -List of necessities in Equipment and reagents was done – priority for parasitology - Training Now 3 members of pathology laboratory are in training process in San Diego – 1 month – IF and cytogenetic techniques; dermato and renal pathology Another visit in April

7 Kanimambo! Obrigada! Thank you!
