m-Africa workshop

On the 12 & 13 December, the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) hosted the m-Africa workshop in Durban. The project is a two-year Medical Research Council GCRF Foundation Award that started in April 2017. m-Africa has allowed researchers from University College London, Imperial College London, and AHRI to work together to evaluate the feasibility of introducing mobile phone-connected tools to improve access to HIV testing, as well as linkage to care, in KwaZulu-Natal.

i-sense Patient and Public Involvement

With the help of a Patient Public Involvement Starter Grant from the NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre, Dr Harriet Gliddon, an i-sense Postdoc in the McKendry group, held a consultation with people who are living with HIV to understand how i-sense research developing a rapid test for HIV viral load could be used by individuals in the home and link them to digital healthcare systems.

Phones, drones, and disease; i-sense presents at a workshop at the University of Hong Kong

On 17 and 18 May 2018, i-sense members Dr Val Turbé (McKendry group at UCL) and Professor Rosanna Peeling from LSHTM were invited to take part in the ‘Phones, Drones and Disease’ workshop, organised by the Centre for the Humanities and Medicine at the University of Hong Kong.

The purpose of the workshop is to explore how digital networks are reconfiguring health, who benefits from these new technologies, who pays for them and what kinds of resistance and countervailing effects are these technologies producing.

Harnessing video technology and paper microfluidics to measure protein binding affinities

Measuring the binding affinity between the building block of life - proteins - lies at the heart of biochemistry, disease diagnostics, and drug discovery. However, despite widespread demand and potential applications, common methods rely on expensive laboratory-based equipment, such as surface plasmon resonance and interferometry.

Flagship 1 attend the 1st International Conference on Re-emerging Infectious Diseases in Addis

Dr Noah Fongwen, a member of Professor Rosanna Peeling's team within i-sense Flagship 1, was invited for a policy talk on diagnostic priorities for the implementation of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance in Africa during the 1st International Conference on Re-emerging Infectious Diseases (ICREID).

Dr Fongwen’s abstract was among the 12 accepted (out of 96) for oral presentation during plenary sessions at the ICREID.
