Ms. Juliet Katoba Ndhlovu joins the Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program from Lusaka, Zambia where she worked as a Research Associate with the Kaposi Sarcoma-associated Herpes-virus (HHV-8) study in the Department of Paediatric and Child Health, University of Zambia (UNZA). She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Zambia, and completed her MPhil in Health Sciences – Infectious Diseases at the University of Bergen in Norway.  Juliet’s interaction with researchers and research participants initially ignited her interest in research ethics.

She has experience in counselling and testing HIV/AIDS patients in Zambia and is particularly interested in the intersection of bioethics and paediatric HIV/AIDS research. She has explored this issue both in her studies and while teaching courses in research methods and bioethics through the UNZA Department of Community Medicine. Juliet looks forward to being more intimately involved in research ethics at her home institution after her training at Johns Hopkins.
