Professor Joseph Ndung’u is the Head of FIND’s Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) programme. He has a degree in veterinary medicine and surgery (BVM) from the University of Nairobi, and a PhD on the immunopathology of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT or sleeping sickness) from the University of Glasgow’s Veterinary School in Scotland. He became a Visiting Professor of the University in 2001, and has held a similar position at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA. In 2013, he became a Corresponding Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (CorrFRSE).
Professor Ndung’u started his professional career in 1985 at the Kenya Trypanosomiasis Research Institute (KETRI). In 1992 he became Deputy Director in charge of research, and in 1995, Director of KETRI. After 9 years in this position, he was transferred to KARI as Chief Research Officer. He moved to FIND in 2006 to establish the HAT diagnostics programme, which has since been expanded and re-named the NTD programme. In addition to HAT, the other diseases in the NTD portfolio include Leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, Buruli ulcer, Soil-Transmitted Helminthiases (STH) and Dengue. The programme also strategically addresses unmet diagnostic needs of NTD in the London Declaration of 2012.
