Catching up with the Neotree study!

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

Many congratulations to Dr. Felicity Fitzgerald who recently won the Simon Newall award for her work using data collected via the Neotree in Zimbabwe to improve recognition and outcomes of neonates with suspected sepsis.

Huge congratulations to Prof. Michelle Heys who received a prestigious NIHR Global Research Professorship award. Her research will extend and expand the Neotree application to support the delivery of newborn healthcare in low resource settings, while fostering community engagement and developing research leadership and capacity.

Congratulations also to Dr. Simbarashe Chimhuya (Principal Investigator for Neotree in Zimbabwe) who will soon be starting his PhD as part of the same NIHR Global Research Professorship award. His project is titled ‘Co-development and pilot acceptability, feasibility and usability study for a digital learning health system for perinatal care (Mummytree)’.

Neotree has also welcomed, Aditi Rao, who is the new programme manager and implementation specialist for the Neotree project based at University College London. We hope she will visit Zimbabwe in the not-too-distant future!
