Personal Statement:I am a veterinary research officer and an animal vaccine producer. I have excellent use of cell culture and embryonating chicken egg substrates in viral vaccine production. I carry out routine quality tests to ascertain sterility, safety, potency and efficacy of vaccines. I have a penchant for improving vaccine production output in my laboratory, by introducing faster and cheaper alternative protocols, and designing multivalent vaccines and thermostable vaccines.
I am currently enrolled for a PhD in advanced virology, to investigate the cause of Infectious Bursal Disease post-vaccination failure in chicken flocks and to develop an effective indigenous Infectious Bursal Disease vaccine from locally circulating virus strains in my country
