Our December star is Ingred Bitengo, Research Assistant – Data & IT. Ingred’s primary responsibilities involve data management cleaning and setup, end user training, ICT infrastructure management and generating participants’ unique IDs and laboratory kit labels. Overtime, Ingred has gladly taken up additional tasks such as supporting the administration of stock & inventory, petty cash as well as well as maintaining study documentation.

While Ingred has a wealth of experience in supporting clinical research from her previous engagements, she however acknowledges that:

“The PRECISE study has immensely transformed me, I had a unique experience handling the two sites when I was the only Data and IT assistant. This experience was challenging and rewarding at the same time, and incredibly shaped my professional pathway.”

Emily Mwadime, Research Nurse shared her thoughts about Ingred:

“Ingred always ensures that everything is in order, she regularly conducts data training and lately during this pandemic she constantly reminds us even on the simplest things like maintaining social distance and wearing masks. On a professional and personal level, Ingred is a star”
