Personal Statement My long term research interests involve on chronic diseases management and care pertaining to the scope of clinical pharmacy. My academic training and research experiences to date have provided me with an excellent background in such area of medication therapy and outcome research. As an undergraduate student at MU, I conducted research with Mr. Tesfa Marew with a title ‘Antiretroviral medication use and magnitude of opportunistic infections in HIV-infected persons visiting Mekelle hospital’. It was something promising especially for a young researcher starting his career and tuning his life long journey in area of clinical research and practices. I was then employed at MU with the rank of graduate assistant II and worked for 1 year and become an assistant lecturer before moving to JU for my master’s study in 2010. My graduate degree thesis at JU was titled ‘Retrospective Study of the Pattern of Antibiotic Use in Hawassa University Referral Hospital Pediatric Ward, Southern Ethiopia 1’ was in fact resulted in a co-authorship publication with so much admiration in the scientific community. I then returned back to MU and continued working with a rank of lecturer. In 2013, I have changed my working environment somewhere nearer to the capital Addis at Ambo University (AU) due to family reasons with similar academic rank and worked there before finally transferred to Addis Ababa University (AAU) in 2015. I then promoted to the rank of assistant professor in 2017. In the same year I have obtained admission at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS), Dar es Salaam, Tanzanina, having a scholarship awarded from DAAD. Meanwhile a number of publications were produced in collaborative researches with my students and colleagues. Only few articles are shown below as references 2-7. Currently I am conducting my doctoral research in area of ‘incidence of cardiometabolic biomarkers in HIV infected persons-cohort study’; So far things are going well except the challenges aced from diferent direction. One from many is financial constraints because DAAD doesn’t sponsor the full research expenses. I have tried to apply to many grant resources but due to a number of reasons not successful so far. 1.
