H3Africa Spotlights

Nanjala Ruth

Nanjala Ruth

Congratulations to Ruth Nanjala on being the first prize winner of the Fellows Speed Presentations at the 19th H3Africa Consortium Meeting that took place from 29 May to 1 June in Abuja, Nigeria.

Ruth Nanjala is an Eastern Africa Network for Bioinformatics Training (EANBiT) fellow. She presently leads the Bioinformatics mentorship and incubation program at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE), Kenya. She pursued an M.Sc. in Bioinformatics at Pwani University, Kenya and the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Her Masters’ research focused on evaluating the accuracy of genotype imputation in the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) region in selected African populations. She holds a B.Sc. degree in Microbiology from Pwani University where she graduated with a first-class honors degree. Ruth is interested in human genetics and genomics research, with particular focus on applying bioinformatics to understand the mechanisms underlying human diseases, especially diseases such as cancer which claims many lives in Africa. She hopes to work towards addressing the gap in disease diagnoses, prognosis and treatment and thus improve the health and lives of others.
