Prof. Dranzoa began lecturing at the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Makerere University in 1991 and she was entrusted to head the Wildlife and Animal Resource Management unit and oversee its development. By the time she left the portfolio in 2005 to take on administrative roles, the faculty had transformed into the College of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio-Security.
