LASU Shines Again As Dr Anjorin Wins Global Virology Network Award


By Nurat Uthman

The Lagos State University (LASU) has once again found itself on the positive page of global media mention courtesy of the sterling performance of its intellectual ambassador in the faraway United States of America.

This time, LASU’s ambassadorial torchbearer is Dr. AbdulAzeez Anjorin, the Ag. Head of the Department of Microbiology in the Faculty of Science, who is currently on a short course in the USA.

Anjorin, the Science Don, has done himself and the Lagos State University proud by winning the Global Virology Network (GVN) 2023 Training Scholarship/Award for a short course in Basic and Translational Virology at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health Baltimore, USA.

The award-winning researcher has also been selected among the Bacterial and Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center (BV-BRC) 2023 Trainee at the Argonne National Laboratory, Chicago, Lemont Illinois, USA.

According to the award letter issued and signed by Professor Dr. Christian Brechot, President of Global Virology Network and Professor Robert Gallo, the Co-founder and International Advisor, the scholarship training will be on the fundamental, translational, and clinical aspects of viruses relevant to human health. The course will also include time for discussion and interaction with renowned medical virology leaders, industry partners, policymakers and programme officials from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

In a conversation with the Award recipient from the United States, he is hopeful that the scholarship training will enhance his capacity development for knowledge sharing among Faculty members and training of both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the area of genomics and metagenomics using the newly developed bioinformatics tools by the United States Argonne National Laboratory, Chicago, Lemont Illinois, and the skills from the GVN training at the Ivy leagues.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, mni, NPOM has congratulated the award-winning LASU ambassador on the feat even as she wishes him more success in his endeavours.
