About Company

The KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP) is based within the KEMRI Centre for Geographic Medical Research – (Coast). Our core activities are funded by the Wellcome Trust. We conduct integrated epidemiological, social, laboratory and clinical research in parallel, with results feeding into local and international health policy. Our research platforms include state-of-the-art laboratories, a demographic surveillance system covering a quarter of a million residents, partnership with Kilifi County Hospital in health care and hospital surveillance, a clinical trials facility, a vibrant engagement programme and a dedicated training facility.

The KWTRP leadership includes the Ag. Executive Director Edwine Barasa, the KEMRI Centre Director Dr. Joseph Mwangangi, Deputy Director George Warimwe and the Chief Operating Officer Catherine Kenyatta.

In Nairobi, our unit was based at the capital’s Kenyatta Hospital, and just recently relocated to 197 Lenana Place, along Lenana Road.  This unit has strong links with the Ministry of Health, facilitating the translation of research findings into health policy. Work is carried out in collaboration with other centres of KEMRI and Ministries of Health and education in many other districts.

The Programme has two main bases in Kenya but works in many other parts of the country and is increasingly involved in regional collaborations to support research in neighbouring countries.

The main centre in Kilifi County, an hour’s drive from Kenya’s second largest city, Mombasa, is based in a busy district hospital, serving over half a million people and linking basic studies to clinical applications with local relevance. We also work in Malindi, Mombasa, Mtwapa and Bondo.
