Overseas MRC Sites
Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit, Tanzania
We provide statistical support to researchers in the UK and overseas, and have for many years provided epidemiological and statistical support to the main MRC-funded research centres in Africa including the MRC research units in Uganda, The Gambia and the MRC supported Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit (MITU), in Tanzania. This includes helping with the design and conduct of studies, advising and guiding locally employed statisticians, collaborating with Unit researchers, and teaching on training courses in epidemiology, statistics and research methods (organised at the Units for local scientists).
We have also helped to create a clinical trials data centre at the Kenya Medical Research Institute, Nairobi, competent in GCP-compliant data management systems and electronic data capture.
