Congratulations CENIT@EA Industrial Liaison Dr. Dina Z. Machuve, 2019 OSWD Early Career Fellow

Dr.  Machuve is developing a diagnostics tool based on deep learning that can provide early detection of three primary poultry diseases: Coccidiosis, Salmonellosis and Newcastle disease, and that can be used on a mobile phone. These three poultry diseases can have mortality rates of up to 100%, and some are zoonotic (can spread to humans). The collective impact of the diseases on food security in Africa, which has 10% of the global poultry population, is very large. By allowing for earlier diagnosis of the diseases, she hopes to enable small- and medium-sized poultry farmers in Tanzania to limit the spread of the diseases and thereby to increase productivity and profit.  Click here for more information
