A team of academics from Virginia Tech in USA is in Malawi to explore more areas of collaboration with the Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST). According to Edwin Khundi, one of the collaborators from MUST, Virginia Tech and MUST have previously collaborated on the African Drone and Data Academy (ADDA) but they now want to explore implementation of more project in the field of Biomedical Engineering. “Among others we are looking at ultra sound and cervical cancer by exploring usage of some technologies and test them locally. So apart from collaborative meetings, the US team also made medical supplies donations to Thyolo District Hospital and Kamuzu Central Hospital,” said Khundi, a lecturer in Biomedical Engineering. He said the other areas of interest are space technologies, capacity building of MUST staff at masters and PhD levels, design of medical devices and outreach services to hospitals, with more focus on Thyolo District Hospital. The two teams are also looking at having MUST staff teach at Virginia Tech and vice versa hence the need to expand the scope of their MoU to include join grant application, project implementation and staff exchanges.
