Zambia Neurology Research Center

Project Description

Through colleagues at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, DPI’s directors became acquainted with Dr. Omar Siddiqi’s work in Zambia. Dr. Siddiqi first visited Zambia in 2005 when he was a neurology resident at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to explore the possibilities of doing global health neurology research there. Named a Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellow in 2010, he moved to the southern African country and has been there ever since. Dr. Siddiqi is an assistant professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, the Director of the Global Neurology Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and a lecturer at the University of Zambia. In 2018, he helped launch Zambia’s first neurology research training program. An important need was to create a space for this work. The Darwin Project was pleased to fund the facility, and we currently are working with Dr. Sidiqi and a South African manufacturer to fund installation of a solar system to power the facility.
