Dr. Erick Kipsang Mibei

Other Roles: 

Coordinator - Kapkatet Campus of Health Sciences


Research Interests: 

I have a desire to become a critical and independent scientist, capable of designing and executing high quality research studies in areas of malaria and other infectious diseases and mentoring upcoming young scientists. My long-term professional objective is to become one of the leading researchers in Africa and an excellent teacher and mentor.
