PROFILE

Dr Cosmas Onyekachi Ujowundu holds a PhD in Biochemistry. He lectures at the Department of Biochemistry, Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Nigeria. He teaches different aspects of Biochemistry (Industrial Pollution and Waste Management Technology, Environmental Toxicology, Environmental Pollution and Waste Management, Xenobiotics and Forensic Biochemistry, Industrial Biochemistry, Genetic Engineering, Metabolic Pathways, Nutritional and Food Biochemistry, Phytochemistry) at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has numerous scientific publications in international and local journals to his credit. His works are in Environmental Toxicology and Nutritional Toxicology. He is interested in the use of nature to remedy environmental challenges induced by anthropogenic activities of man. He exploits the biochemical similarities and differences conferred by the genetic makeup of organisms to achieve this. Dr Ujowundu measures contaminants in environmental, wildlife, fish and food samples with a view to examining the biomagnification, biotransformation, and toxicological effects of priority pollutants in these environmental samples. His research interests include the analyses of polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAH), pesticides and heavy metals as contaminants in foods and environmental matrices. His research interest also covers the toxicological effects of PAH and heavy metals and the analysis of biomarkers of human exposure to hazardous compounds (biomonitoring).
