In collaboration with the Tanzania National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)

Training Activities

The Unit is implementing a programme of staff recruitment and training to build the skills and expertise needed to carry out health research, including clinical trials, conforming to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines and other international standards. In addition, the programme aims to contribute to strengthening research infrastructure and human resources by offering training in research methods, data management and analysis, and other related fields.
The Unit is committed to meeting these objectives and to providing a range of training opportunities to its staff, collaborators and individuals working in health research within Tanzania and the East African region.


Training Resources

The Unit is housed in a building with a total floor area of 1,905 square metres, which provides conference and training facilities as well as two floors of office space for MITU staff. The conference and training facilities include a large conference room with the capacity to accommodate up to 150 participants and a smaller training room suitable for about 40 people.


Workshops & Seminars

As part of activities to promote scientific exchange, the Unit collaborates with NIMR to organise a series of workshops and training. There is a bi-monthly seminar which is well attended by scientists from the research community within Mwanza. The seminars are given by invited guests, young scientists from the campus and more experienced visiting scientists from within and outside Tanzania.
