Pharmacology Department

In 2011, among 32 African institutions selected as ANDI Centres of Excellence in health innovation, TBRI represented by pharmacology laboratory; was assigned as the “ANDI Centre of Excellence on Anti-Trematodal R&D” by the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) of the African Network for Drugs and Diagnostics Innovation (ANDI).

 Drug Evaluation and Discovery Unit (DEDO), a subsidiary of pharmacology laboratory, will help in support and development of the activities of the center. The excellencecentre is willing to collaborate with ANDI and with other African institutions with a focus on natural products, to complement research lines regarding the prevalent endemic diseases, and to increase our south-south collaboration to address specific health problems in the African continent. Moreover, it is looking for exchange visits between researchers with different capacities to help in building De Novo capacities, leverage existing ones through not only exchange of visits but also through training and execution of collaborative research projects.

The activities of the centre include the following training programes:

  1. In vitro testing of antischistosomal activity of drugs/compounds
