About RSC

Mission:
It is the RSC’s mission to create and maintain a stimulating environment at CoM for generation of new knowledge and high impact research through research leadership development, delivery of research training and mentorship programmes, and provision of research support services.

Rationale:
While numerous faculty members at the College of Medicine (COM) are already involved in clinical research projects, the research agendas have typically been developed by foreign institutions. The goal of the RSC is to strengthen both administrative and research capacity so that ideas generated at the COM can be funded and administered directly.

Organizational Structure and Staffing:
The RSC is organized under the Office of Postgraduate Studies and Research (OPSR) at the COM. The RSC team includes a Director, Grants Compliance Officer, Risk Analyst,Clinical Research Associates, Data Manager, Training Coordinator, Procurement Officer, Human Resource Officer, Data Officers, Marketing and Communications Officer and Administrative Assistant.
