Joyce Nyiro Prof. James Nokes

Janet graduated with a Degree in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Nairobi.

She has some experience in disease surveillance, having worked with FELTP Kenya, researching on zoonotic diseases, specifically hydatid disease. She is currently pursuing a post graduate diploma in health research methods, working on a project whose aim is to find out the potential effectiveness of a vaccine given to a pregnant mother to prevent a disease that affects the respiratory system (respiratory syncytial virus disease) in infants.

Looking forward to acquiring research skills that would be of benefit in future projects. Mainly interested in improving one health by researching on zoonotic agent epidemiology and increasing awareness of the same.
