Dr. Stellah George Mpagama

Dr. Stellah George Mpagama is a physician scientist at the Kibong’oto Infectious Diseases Hospital. My main research interest is in development of solution to both programmatic and clinical challenges for Infectious Diseases. My research focus has addressed challenges and proposed approaches for optimizing management of MDR-TB currently I am building a clinical trial unit and developing a group of research scientists that will not only address MDR-TB but also other infectious diseases threats in Tanzania. My professional goal is to build research capacity through carefully designed clinical and programmatic/health system/implementation studies and to provide mentoring to Tanzanians in infectious diseases research eventually translates research in best practice.

Contribution to Science

I mastered a steep learning curve related to the clinical management of TB—the difficulties and delays in diagnosis, side effects of the prolonged therapy, and seeing my patients struggle through the social ramifications of their diagnoses, among others. During this time, there was a rise in the prevalence of MDR-TB,which brought additional challenges. It was not difficult to see that our patients needed strong leaders to use international standards of excellence as well as research renovations to improve their plight. I sought opportunities for advancing the management of our patients through hypothesis-driven research. We examined the first cohort of MDR-TB treated cases at my work place.


I am a member of the KNCHREC on the Issues of Human Subject pertaining to Medical and Clinical research protocols. Besides, I am one of the core founding members of the KCHREC from the Research Ethics Review Platform held in 2016. I am delighted to serve the committee with the potentials at my disposal.
