Chibueze Chioma Ezinne (nee Nnorom), MBBS, PhD
Research Fellow, National Center for Child Health and Development, Tokyo, Japan

Dr. Chibueze Chioma Ezinne (nee Nnorom) graduated from the University of Nigeria with Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery. Thereafter, having a taste for research, she enrolled for further studies in Japan resulting in a PhD in Medical Sciences.

She is strongly interested in maternal, child health and related health policies being a mother too, this informed her enrolling for this course.

Currently completing a research fellowship in the National Center for Child Health and Development, Tokyo, Japan, she believes relevant skills garnered from the fellowship together with that from the training will help her contribute her quota to projects and education on maternal and child health related issues in her country, Nigeria.

Recently, she got involved in technical contributions to evidence base generation and guideline development for health policies in international and national organizations. As a member of the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group Japan, she is involved in quality systematic and Cochrane review projects related to maternal and child health, also incorporating hematologic and immunologic disorders in mothers and children.

Further, she is interested in collaborations both on a local, national and international basis. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or Researchgate.
