Mbale Clinical Research Institute conducts a series of clinical trials focusing on in-patient hospital care and out-patient healthcare. Notably evidence based research involving molecular laboratory work, infectious diseases, emergency paediatrics, and community engagement. The approach that we have used emphasizes on high quality research, local capacity building of human resources, infrastructure and equipping of the key research stations.

This approach has led to collaborations with both national and international partners including Mbale Regional Referral Hospital, Busitema University, KEMRI Wellcome Trust, JCRC, MUJHU, etc. We are dedicated to delivering the highest research quality and services. Over the years, MCRI’s portfolio has gradually expanded to include different studies involving Severe Anaemia, Severe Pneumonia, Hydroxyurea with SCA, Severe Hypoxia, Malaria, HIV alongside many other major studies.
