The University of Gondar has a longstanding commitment and tradition of undertaking research. It has a history that dates back to the 1950s and the work of the Gondar Public Health and Training Center. Since then valuable pieces of research have been conducted by both staff and students helping to provide timely and necessary information within a range of different fields. Hundreds of articles have been produced by staff members. Please browse through our staff pages in order to find out more.
The University has identified 20 key thematic areas with the aim of enhancing and encouraging undertakings that seek to resolve societal problems. We offer annual grants to encourage and nurture a culture of research work. We also hold an annual staff and student research conference to showcase key work. Our various Academic Units also carry out a range of research activities under priority research areas. We also have a dedicated team of staff coordinating research activities across the University. Our research activities are overseen by our Institutional Review Board.
In September 2008 the College of Medicine and Health Sciences (CMHS) began publishing the Ethiopian Journal of Health and Biomedical Sciences.
In order to encourage and carry out specialist research the University has also established 3 Research Centers - Dabat Research Center established in 1995, the Research Center for Social Sciences and Humanities established in 2011 and most recently the Climate Change Research Center in 2012. Please visit their respective pages for more information. We also have plans to establish a Tropical and Infectious Diseases Research Center in the near future.
