Laboratory Technologist I

Bachelor of Science (Biochemistry); Master of Science (Pharmacological Biochemistry)


I was born on a warm sunny day in Nsukka Enugu State. I grew up and worked my way through school at the University Campus in Nsukka. I attended University Staff School, University of Nigeria Secondary School and finally, the University of Nigeria Nsukka where I obtained my Bachelor and Masters degrees. Over the years, I developed an enthusiasm for research in the area of Medical Immunology and Pharmacoepidemiology associated with women’s health. I am actively involved in contemporary issues related to gender, health and STEM education advocacy for the girl-child.
