Project summary

Eleanor is a senior researcher and lecturer based at the Centre for Evidence-based Health Care at Stellenbosch University. Her research interests revolve around evidence-based medicine with a focus on diagnostic tests and markers, specifically their accuracy, impact and how their results can be translated into policy and practice. During this Fellowship she will evaluate designs of clinical trials for measuring the impact of diagnostic tests for tuberculosis (TB) on patient-important outcomes and develop a framework that will guide researchers in designing suitable trials for TB diagnostic tests.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Training Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
