Kehinde Joan Abayomi
- Usmanu Danfodiyo University, 2017, Bachelor in Medical Laboratory Science
I am a first generation student from Nigeria, Africa. My research interests include cancer immunology, cancer immunotherapy, precision medicine and drug discovery. My undergraduate thesis was focused on microalbuminuria (MA) in women with risk factors for gestational diabetes mellitus. I analyzed electrolytes using the ISE technique while MA was estimated using turbidimetric technique. I have previously worked as a research assistant at the pathology laboratory of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital (UDUTH) where I was involved in tissue processing, microtomy, staining and immunohistochemistry for cancer diagnosis. I currently work as a molecular scientist with Medbury Medical Services where I employ the use of spin columns and automated machines for RNA extraction and PCR for viral amplification. I am very excited to join the GSBSE biomedical science program, as this will equip me with the necessary hands-on research techniques and skills that will open me up to the world of cancer immunotherapy and precision oncology. In addition, I am highly enthusiastic about the different laboratory rotations as this will afford me the opportunity to meet different faculty members, departmental staff and students. After my program, I plan to pursue a post doctoral fellowship as this will prepare me into becoming an independent researcher and a principal investigator.
