Dr. Wahabu Hamisi Kimaro is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Cell Biology of the College of Veterinary and Medical Sciences, Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA).

He graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (BVM) of SUA, Tanzania in 2001. In 2005, he graduated his Master of Science (Cum laude) in Anatomy and Physiology, and PhD in 2012 from the University of Pretoria, South Africa.

In his masters, he worked on the morphology of Ovary in the immature Ostrich (Struthiocamellus spp) using structural and immunohistochemical techniques. His PhD focused on the effects of environmental contaminants (fungicides) on the female reproductive tract of Japanese quails.

Dr. Kimaro is activelly involved in training both graduate and postgraduate students at SUA. He is also conducting research, national and international consultancies as well as, community servises.He has published scientific articles in peer reviewed journals and proceedings.

Currently he’s serving as an assistant Editor for Tanzania Veterinary Journal (TVJ) and a member in various University committees. Through collaborations, Dr Kimaro plays an important role in problem-solving researches towards improving livestock industry in Tanzania and the public health.

Current research area:
Pathophysiological effects of chemical contaminants in the nervous and reproductive tissues using animal model
