Interim Director’s Welcome



Professor Henry Mwandumba, Interim MLW Director

Welcome to MLW! 

MLW is a wonderful community of inspiring people dedicated to making a difference to improve health in Malawi, the region, and the world.  We welcome experts and students from Malawi and around the world to join us in our aims of conducting research to benefit health and train the next generation of researchers. 

MLW is 25 years old and growing.  Our current Themes are described on web pages here.  Looking forward, we are currently building our next generation of research leaders, aiming to have some 20 research groups (currently 16) led by locally resident Malawians and international scientists, focused on a wide range of important, relevant topics.  Our research groups all collaborate to drive the Themes, supported by Operations and effective Research Support Units (clinical, laboratory, data, and statistics). 

I welcome you to join us.

Henry Mwandumba.
