Biography:

Onesmo K. ole-MoiYoi joined the African Insect Science for Food and Health (ICIPE), based in Nairobi, Kenya, as Director of Research and Partnerships in 2001. ICIPE's mission is to help alleviate poverty, ensure food security and improve the overall health status of peoples of the tropics by developing and extending management tools and strategies for harmful and useful arthropods, while preserving the natural resource base through research and capacity building. ole-MoiYoi's current interests, as a senior visiting scientist, include studies on molecular mechanisms for resistance to tropical diseases, especially malaria. Prior to this, he headed the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Laboratory at the predecessor institute (ILRAD) of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), where he was Leader in the Program on Pathophysiology and Genetics in Nairobi for about 14 years. He held an assistant professorship and Capps’ Scholar position at Harvard Medical School and a visiting professorship at the Harvard School of Public Health. He is currently a member of the Science Council for the Consultative Group of International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and of Steering Committees of HUGO (Human Genome Organisation), among other appointments. Onesmo ole-MoiYoi, who was a 1968 graduate of Harvard College, where he was an Aga Khan Scholar, and of Harvard Medical School (1972) is the laureate of a 2003 Kilby International Award for innovations in molecular aspects of research on tropical protozoan parasites and university education. He is also the Chairman of the Kenyatta University Council in Kenya – the longest-serving individual in such a position. The Government of Kenya has honoured ole-MoiYoi with an Elder of the Order of the Burning Spear (EBS) for his contributions to university education.
