Innocent Valea

Current Job Research scientist
Personal Statement PharmD by background, I completed a MSc and a PhD degree in health biology and medical sciences, respectively. As a Medical scientist,
specialized in epidemiology and clinical research, I actively contributes to the design and implementation of research projects, including
epidemiological studies and clinical trials on malaria and other infectious diseases. I was involved in the setup and development of the
ClinicalResearch Unit of Nanoro (CRUN) as one of the site leaders. Having completed an auditor/lead auditor ISO certified training for quality
management systems, I supervise the quality management system of CRUN at the position of deputy head and QA manager. With more than fifteen years’
experience in clinical research and a track record of over 40 projects successfully implemented, I also share my field experiences through
lectures on clinical research and surveillance, monitoring and evaluation of health interventions and particularly malaria control programs. I am
actively involved in several health sciences research projects covering capacity building, community based interventions and product
development including drug and vaccines with regular contacts with the policy makers and program implementers at Ministry of health level. With more
than ten-year’s experience as deputy head of CRUN, and two-year’s experience as Executive director of the National Centre for Research and
Training on Malaria, Ministry of Health, Burkina Faso, I was able to develop a strong expertise in implementing international research standards,
and good skills in networking and team building. I have authored/co-authored more than 70 scientific papers in peer-review journals, with a
specific interest on malaria epidemiology, drug efficacy, operational research, and community based interventions.
