Directorate of Research Coordination and Promotion The directorate provides technical advice on matters related to research development and promotion.It is responsible for developing/up-dating and implementing strategies for research within the institute.
The establishment of NIMR was in recognition by the government of the need to generate scientific information required in the development of better methods and techniques of enhancing disease management, prevention and control in the country.The National Institute for Medical Research was established with the following functions: i) To carry out and promote the carrying out of medical research designed to alleviate disease among the people of Tanzania; ii) To carry out and promote the carrying out of research into various aspects of local traditional medical practices for the purpose of facilitating the development and application of herbal medicine; iii) To cooperate with the government or any person, or body of persons, in promoting or providing facilities for, the training of local personnel for carrying out scientific research into medical problems; iv) To monitor, control and coordinate medical research carried out within Tanzania, or elsewhere on behalf of or for the benefit of the government of Tanzania, and to evaluate the findings of that research; v) To establish a system of the registration of, and to register the findings of medical research carried out within Tanzania, and promote the practical application of those findings for the purpose of improving or advancing the health and general welfare of the people of Tanzania; vi) To establish and operate systems of documentation and dissemination of information on any aspect of the medical research carried out by or on behalf of the institute Vision To be an institution of excellence for advancement of health research and development in Tanzania and beyond Mission To conduct, coordinate, regulate and promote scientifically and ethically sound, high quality health research and deliver evidence-based information that is responsive to the needs of human wellbeing Organization Structure The legislation establishing NIMR has vested its governance oversight in the Institute’s Council, which operates through four committees.The committees include the Appointments and Disciplinary Committee; the Planning and Finance Committee; the Audit Committee, and the Medical Research Coordination Committee (MRCC).The Council is made up of a Chairman and twelve members.The President of the United Republic of Tanzania appoints the Council Chairman, whereas the Minister for Health appoints other Council members.

The age of gold–copper–lead mineralization in the Katuma Block of the Ubendian Belt remains controversial because of the lack of radiometric ages that correlate with the age of tectonothermal events of this poly-orogenic belt.
Previous studies reported whole rock and mineral Pb–Pb ages ranging between 1,660 and 720 Ma.
In this study, we report U–Th–total Pb ages of monazite from hydrothermally altered metapelites that host the Au–Cu–Pb-bearing veins.
