Mr. Emmanuel Mbuba has a BSc. in Biotechnology and Laboratory Sciences from Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), and MSc. Molecular Biology from University of Dar es Salaam. He joined IHI in 2010. He has been working as a laboratory scientists in different projects including the molecular epidemiology of drug resistance tuberculosis, genetic diversity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, molecular epidemiology of drug resistance in plasmodium malaria. Currently, Emmanuel is coordinating the implementation of good laboratory and experimental practice standards (i.e. GLP) at IHI for testing insecticide products including long-lasting insecticide treated nets and products for indoor residual spraying. Also, he is involved in the project investigating malaria protective efficacy of permethrin treated Army Combat Uniforms (PTU) measured by reduction in new Plasmodium falciparum malaria cases confirmed by PCR during monthly active case detection. Emmanuel’s research interest is on the transmission of malaria, molecular epidemiology of antimalarial drug resistance, and molecular resistance of mosquitoes to insecticidal products.
