We offer lab services as well as participation in various molecular projects across the region. Some of the projects that our labs have supported are listed below.
Projects Supported by Our Labs
Comparison of Sensitivity level of CareHPV Qiagen Instrument and Cobas Roche Machine on HPV Screening.
Epidemiology, molecular characterization of HIV/AIDs related Kaposis Sarcoma: Nairobi Cohort Kenya.
Genetic Variation in Brancharia Species Using SSR Primers.
PCR on Suspected Pestes des Petits Ruminants (PPR) Virus Infection in Camel: Northern Kenya.
We have undertaken FUT2 polymorphisms in Humans. The work is being done by a PHD student who want to find the polymorphisms in Kenyan HIV infected Women. The polymorphisms have been associated with different responses to infections as well as with HIV-1 progression. The current challenge is that we used a big proportion of the budget in optimizations and currently we are seeking for more sponsorship for the project.
The role of Human Leukocyte Antigen and Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain variation in susceptibility in pulmonary tuberculosis patients and their contacts in Kenyan population.
Pyrosequencing for Rapid Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Resistance First Line drugs in Five Counties: Kenya.
