Immaculate Nabukenya


Makerere University, Kampala Uganda

I am a highly motivated and ambitious epidemiologist with 14 years’ experience in animal and human health related work and research for development. My personal goal is to engage in health-related biosocial research using principles of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Information Technology and International Public Health with a bias to emerging, re-emerging and zoonotic disease control. As an epidemiologist and researcher, I have gained sufficient experience and skill mix to lead a team with minimal supervision and with excellent ability to mobilize and steer team work. Additionally, I have participated in several large and small outbreak investigations and response including Yellow Fever in 2016, Rift Valley Fever outbreak 2016; Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever outbreak 2015; Ebola Viral Haemorrhagic Fever (VHF) in 2007, 2010, 2012; Marburg VHF in 2012, 2014; Yellow fever in 2011 & 2013; Meningococcal meningitis in 2010 & 2014; Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever in 2013; Influenza A (H1N1) in 2010-2011, Cholera and other outbreaks in Uganda. As a solution to rampant infectious diseases in animals and humans, vaccine development is a high priority, in addition to developing stewardship programs for antimicrobial use.
