Dr. Edwin Walong O. Oloo
Pathology Nairobi County, Scientific Team Member
I am a Lecturer at the Anatomic Pathology Unit, Department of Human Pathology, School of Medicine, University of Nairobi. In addition to teaching and instruction, I provide clinical service as a pathologist in a busy referral hospital (Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya). Over the last 5 years, I have participated in autopsy studies aimed at establishing causes of severe pneumonia in deceased children. In this we established that syndrome based clinical management protocols appear limited in preventing mortalities due to severe pneumonia in children. In addition, hospital acquired infections such as Klebsiella and viral infections such as RSV are important etiological agents. Notable innovations in this is the application of genetic diagnostic tools to identify the etiology of fatal pediatric pneumonia and the use of immunohistochemistry to classify pediatric immune deficiency. I have plans to establish projects in Kenya, that will influence policy and guide research into infectious diseases and other non-communicable diseases that affect children and young people in Kenya.
