We are pleased to announce that a third SEARCH fellow has been appointed in Zambia: we welcome Lloyd Mulenga to the team. Lloyd is a clinician, working in the Adult Infectious Diseases Clinic in the University Teaching Hospital (UTH). His initial plans for research are around adverse events and resistance to ART, concentrating on second-line therapy.
In addition, Seh Gumede, who is a PhD student at LSHTM, has been recruited to help with nutrition teaching in Public Health at the University of Zambia (UNZA). Seh has an interest in analysing some of the routine data on nutrition and development in children infected with or exposed to HIV.

The SEARCH fellows in both Tanzania and Zambia are busy with various training programmes, including visits to LSHTM later this year for short courses and meetings with colleagues based at the School. We look forward to welcoming them to London.
We are planning to hold short workshops in Tanzania and Zambia later this year or early in 2016, for the fellows to present their ideas and work within the SEARCH project. Watch this space for further updates.
