College of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences

Research Area

The College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is engaged in research in the broad areas of Medicine, Health Care, Community & Preventive Medicine and Health Science. We have highly qualified staff that have significant experience and who are committed and dedicated to teaching and research. They have the drive to solve problems and can offer their service as consultants. The government and other organisations are welcome to contact any of our staff if they need any consultancy/research to be conducted in these areas. More information about individual staff research area is listed in our staff profile section.

College Research Committee
The core role of the committee is to help to develop and promote research among staff in the College. A secondary role is to scrutinise and approve the research grant application submitted by staff and students in the College. This is a very important process to ensure that works are of a high standard and that FNU policies are complied with. The CMNHS CRC works closely with the Ministry of Health and the National Health Research Committee since researchers usually need approvals from these bodies to use their facilities and data. The names of the committee members are given in the table below.
