In this episode of the Addgene Podcast, we sit down with Kwabena Duedu, a researcher at the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ghana. He’s done research at a number of institutions in Ghana and most recently got his PhD in cell and molecular biology at the University of Edinburgh where he worked on developing novel systems for bioconversion of cellulosic biomass to useful products under Professor Christopher E. French.
Dr. Duedu was recently awarded plasmids from Addgene as a successful applicant to the Addgene, Seeding Labs Plasmid Grant. For this grant, we’re working with fellow nonprofit, Seeding Labs, to distribute plasmids to researchers in developing regions and thereby accelerate their research. Kwabena came across the plasmid grant in Seeding Lab’s Newsletter and recently visited Cambridge to spend some time learning and doing research at Novartis.
Listen to learn how Kwabena plans to use his research experiences as well as plasmids from Addgene to bring new opportunities to Ghanaian scientists
