A Physiologist and a research scientist with the passion in shaping and developing the careers of young and enthusiastic health professionals.
Obtained a Master of Philosophy (Physiology) in 2015 at the University of Ghana.
Vascular Physiology and Cell Biology
My main research focus is to study the structure, function and molecular biology of ion channels and the role of these transport proteins in the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease. I am also involved in genome-wide association studies of genetic variants predisposing to liver diseases.I am currently involved as a principle investigator in studying altered functionality of the Na/Mg exchanger in sickled erythrocytes and its association to specific genotypes and phenotypes of sickle cell disease and the role of renal Mg loss in sickle cell disease as a possible pathway of decreased erythrocyte Mg influx. Together with my research collaborators in Wallenberg Laboratory for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research, University of Gothenburg, a search for new rare genetic variations associated with NAFLD in individuals at risk for NAFLD in Ghana is currently being studied.
