Prof Moyo is the Founding Dean of the School of Health and Applied Sciences, which is now a fully-fledged Faculty since the Institution’s tranformation from polytechnic to university. He is currently a Professor of Biomedical Sciences.
Prof Moyo’s research interests are in maternal and child health. This stems from the fact that maternal and child health continue to be a serious concern in sub-Saharan Africa, as many women and babies continue to lose their lives either before, after or during labour. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 2.6 million stillbirths occur globally, every year.
Befittingly, during the Inaugural Ceremony, Prof Moyo delivered a lecture titled ‘Intrauterine Infection Aetiology in Pregnancy: A Glimpse into Pregnancy Outcome.’
Furthermore, Prof Moyo is a member of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM); the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease (ESCMID); the Association of Pathologists for East, Central and Southern Africa (APECSA), the Zimbabwe Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences (ZIMLS), as well as the Namibia Association of Medical Laboratory Sciences (NAMLS).
He has successfully supervised four PhD and 24 Master’s students, as well as 36 Honours mini-theses research projects. Currently he is supervising one PhD, ten Master’s and four Honours students. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals, which publications include two books and two book chapters.
Prof Moyo’s Inaugural lecture marked the end of a seven-part series of lectures for the year, which were held to honour professors at the Institution for academic excellence. The other recipients were Professors Heike Winschiers-Theophilus, Sarala Krishnamurthy, Hippolyte Muyingi, Percy Chimwamurombe, Dharm Singh Jat and Omotayo Rafiu Awofolu.
