This winter, the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit welcomed a new faculty member. Dr. Olakunle (Kunle) Alonge is an Assistant Scientist in Health Systems and will be managing a large drowning injury study in Bangladesh for JH-IIRU.

Dr. Alonge just completed his PhD in Health Systems and was trained as a physician in Nigeria. He brings great experience working in the developing world on research, in-depth understanding of evaluation methods, and a high energy level that is essential for our work. In addition to his work in Bangladesh, Dr. Alonge will help with the overall growth JH-IIRU and the Health Systems Program.

We are truly excited to have him join our community and look forward to working with him.

Please join us in welcoming Kunle!
