Lecturer, University of Ghana, Ghana

Biography

I obtained my PhD degree in Pharmacology from the University of Strasbourg (France). I was first employed as a Lecturer at Nangui-Abrogoua University (Cote d’Ivoire) and promoted to the rank of Senior Lecturer. I later joined the University of Ghana where I am employed up to date. I have a broad background in Pharmacology and Toxicology with specific training and expertise in Ethnopharmacology-oriented drug discovery in oxidative stress-induced non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, asthma and cancer. I am the founding chairman of the NGO PRORESMAT which was established in 2008 to promote the scientific valuation of Traditional African Medicine.
