Amazing Sandra Musujusu Is A Brilliant Mind, Using Macromolecular Science To Fight Cancer

One of the brightest students in Africa right now is Sandra Musujusu, a female student of the African University of Science and Technology, Abuja. She has developed an alternative treatment for breast cancer.

The scientific breakthrough might lead to a lasting solution in the treatment of breast cancer prevalent among women world over, reports Tribune Online.

This was made known on Tuesday in Abuja when the World Bank Education Director, Dr Jaime Saavedra Chanduvi with his team visited the University as part of his assessment tour of the 10 African Centres of Excellence (ACE) centres. Linkedin user summarizes it perfectly.

Meet Sandra Musujusu, a student in Nigeria who has recently developed a scientific breakthrough which will lead to a lasting solution in the treatment of breast cancer prevalent among women world over. Musujusu’s research, using macromolecular science is aimed at developing biodegradable polymer material which could be used as an alternative for the treatment of breast cancer in the near future. She revealed that her research focuses on triple negative breast cancer which is the aggressive sub-type of breast cancer that is common with women from African ancestry. Musujusu, a Sierra-Leonian National is conducting her research under the sponsorship of the Pan African Materials Institute (PAMI).

Musujusu said, “My research is actually centred on the development of bio-degradable 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 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.”

Out of 19 African Centres of Excellence, 10 Nigerian tertiary institutions won slots to churn out special research works that could compete effectively with global standards.
