    I am a Research Fellow working at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research Lagos, Nigeria. I am advancing a career in basic, clinical and translational research in infectious and non-communicable diseases within the context of the post-genomic era. I am part of several research teams involved in inter-disciplinary research. I use molecular and genomic tools to close health research gaps and needs within my environs.
