Dr. Fraction Dziinjalamala

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Dr. Dzinjalamala is currently a lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology, and Medicinal Chemistry at the College of Medicine, University of Malawi. Dr Dzinjalamala received his B.S.c in Chemistry from the University of Malawi, his PhD in pharmacology from the University of Cape Town, South Africa and his M.S.c in clinical pharmacology from the University of Glasgow, UK. He is also a member of the College of Medicine Research and Ethics Committee at the University of Malawi.  Dr. Dzinjalamala’s interest in research ethics arises mainly from being faced with the challenge of helping prospective study subjects understand the nature, risks, and benefits of a particular study. This challenge became particularly poignant to Dr. Dzinjalamala, when at a meeting on Good Clinical Practices, participants (nurses, clinicians or scientists) failed to raise their hands when asked, “How many of you would allow your child to participate in the drug trials that we are conducting?” For Dr. Dzinjalamala, this incident raised the question of whether biomedical scientists are operating within the realms of justice and beneficence towards the patients participating in studies, based on the controversial claim that the patients have had access to an informed consent process.
