PERSONAL STATEMENT

I have a penchant for collaborating with scientists around the world to solve research problems. My research interest is arbovirology, emerging viral infections, bioweapons and biosecurity. I have excellent tissue culture as well as good molecular diagnostic skills. Sequencing of virus genes is an aspect I am exploring. I teach undergraduate microbiology and medical/dental students aspects of medical virology. I carry out tissue culture procedures often including detection of neutralizing antibodies to viruses. I produce virus antigen using cell lines and polyethylene glycol purification method in order to reduce dependence on importation from overseas. This has proven useful by many collaborators in parts of Nigeria.

As a poet, I have depicted viruses using poetic license for people in the arts and humanities to appreciate diseases they cause, please visit www.poemhunter.com for these poems.
