Introduction:

My name is Jules GOMIS, I am a Software Engineer, Data Manager, Msc in large scale of databases. I have been trained at UCAD (University Cheikh Anta DIOP of Dakar) in advanced data bases, math and Statistics.

I am currently the Data Manager of the Senegalese team for  the NIH Program: ICEMRWAF (International Center of Excellence for Malaria Research in West Africa), a 7-year program from 2010 to 2017.

My experience

I am the Data Manager of the Parasitology and Mycology Laboratories Unit of LeDantec. Between 2003 and 2008 I have worked as Data Manager for the French Institute of Research and Development (IRD), I have developed more than five (05) clinical trials databases with visual basic software for the Tuberculosis and HIV Unit. I have been involved in the development of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention (SMC) with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine plus amodiaquine when administered to 200.000 children less than 10 years of age by district health services in Senegal. I have implemented the  biggest Health and Demographic System Surveillance with a database of 608.000 individuals (SMC Project, Department of Parasitology and Mycology of Cheikh Anta Diop University, Dakar, Senegal) using SQL Server 2008,TELEFORM System based on Electronic form processing and working in shift with 30 Data entry clerks. I also developed a very user-frendly application to capture morbidity data which is currently used by many SMC projects and many institutes. We have published the study results: Safety of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention (SMC) with Sulfadoxine-Pyrimethamine plus Amodiaquine when Delivered to Children under 10 Years of Age by District Health Services in Senegal: Results from a Stepped-Wedge Cluster Randomized Trial

During the past 10 years, I have developed a lot of experience in Data management activities including database creation with appropriate data validation systems, double data entry, query reports, and resolution of discrepancies.

I have Implemented Information technology (IT) infrastructure to host the data management system, including communication capabilities. I also created the Data Coordinating Center (Data Management and Biostatistics Center) able   to support designing, planning, conduct, and analysis of studies in compliance with ICH- GCP and FDA standards.  In Our last project ICEMR, we have developed a web-based system Studytrax with javascript code (www.studytrax.com) containing security, data, and reporting features for appropriate data management system in multi sites trial.

 

Challenges:

 

Using the android devices that are not expensive, we can significantly reduce project budgets by saving paper and ink are the two factors taking up 15% of research budgets. We can also save time because electronic data collection offers direct data entry at the initial point of contact. It has numerous advantages and has the potential to replace paper-based data collection in the field. The availability of information and communication technologies for direct data transfer has the potential to improve the conduct of public health research in resource-poor settings.
