The DiaDev project, Investigating the Design and Use of Diagnostic Devices in Global Health, explores the emergent role that diagnostic devices are playing in the transformation of health systems in low and middle-income countries. Drawing on novel conceptual and methodological tools from social anthropology, it investigates the social, cultural and technical processes involved in developing, deploying and using diagnostic devices in resource-limited settings. DiaDev is led by our Principle Investigator, Dr Alice Street.



INZI (Investigating Networks of Zoonosis Innovation) was a five-year project funded by the European Research Council to explore how African trypanosomiasis (commonly known as sleeping sickness) has been researched, controlled and treated from the Second World War to the present day. Our Research Fellow Dr Shona Jane Lee completed her PhD with the INZI group in 2018 where she researched the socio-ecology of sleeping sickness elimination in northern Uganda.  She has published research on patient experiences of point of care testing and novel drug treatments for sleeping sickness, and their impact on trust in healthcare services and disease control programmes.
