Prof. Aina Adeogun at the University of Ibadan is making strides in her investigation into how pollution affects the hormones of Nigeria’s aquatic life. Her work is lending a greater understanding to how the polluted water impacts Nigeria’s most vulnerable populations: women and children.
No one knows why Igbo-Ora, Nigeria—also known as “Twin Town”—has one of the world’s highest rates of twin births.
Now, Profs. Roseangela Nwuba and Akhere Omonkhua are using molecular biology to investigate, potentially unlocking new avenues of research and treatments for infertility!
Tune in to a brand-new podcast episode highlighting the global impact of our Instrumental Access program! From our partners at Thermo Fisher Scientific, this “Science With a Twist” installment features an update from Instrumental Access awardee Professor Aina Adeogun of Nigeria’s University of Ibadan (pictured above).
Instead of returning to the University of Ibadan (UI) in Nigeria after attending Positively Instrumental in Boston last March, Instrumental Access awardee Dr. Aina Adeogun took a detour to Norway.
Her destination: the lab of longtime collaborator (and fellow Nigerian) Dr. Augustine Arukwe at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim.
