UNN Centre for Clinical Trials Appoints Dr. Laz Eze as Senior Advisor

The newly established University of Nigeria Centre for Clinical Trials has taken off on a strong note under the leadership of a radiation oncologist, Professor Ifeoma Okoye as it recruits experts to lay a solid foundation. One of the pioneer staff of the centre is Dr. Laz Ude Eze – a public health management expert and the Executive Director of the Pink Oak Cancer Trust, Nigeria’s First Cancer Treatment Fund. He is the Senior Advisor – Strategy and Research Communications.

According to a statement by the Centre made available to SIGNAL, Dr. Eze was invited to support the centre in recognition of his passion for health and outstanding technical skills in health communications and growing start-up health institutions. He would be providing technical support towards the strengthening of the centre’s institutional framework, establishment and management of strategic research communications as well as the design and implementation of the visibility plan.

The University of Nigeria Centre for Clinical Trials (UNNCECT) is the first of its kind in West Africa and the second in Sub-Saharan Africa. Clinical trials can be of huge benefits to patients with chronic diseases and medical researchers as it provides knowledge and evidence to improve the effectiveness of drugs and medications.
