A female student of the African University of Science and Technology, Abuja, Sandra Musujusu, is working on a substitute treatment for breast cancer.
NIGERIAN TRIBUNE reported that the scientific breakthrough might lead to a lifelong solution of breast cancer treatment.
The World Bank is said to have pledged about $10 billion for the ACE project in Nigeria, to encourage research and specialization in specific development problems facing Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Sandra explained that she would be focusing on triple negative breast cancer as it is common with African women.
My research is actually centered on the development of biodegradable polymers for treatment of breast cancer.
I will be focusing on triple negative breast cancer which is actually the aggressive sub-type of breast cancer that is common with women from African ancestry.
I believe there is a bright future for Africa, and as a woman, there is much more we can do if we are empowered. This award is given to me by PAMI has empowered me to face my studies with more confidence and actually contribute to the frontier of knowledge and move Africa forward.
