See Nigeria female student who finds cure for breast cancer




Sandra Musujusu, has developed an alternative treatment for breast cancer. She is A student of the African University of Science and Technology, Abuja. This latest development was announced 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 Centers of Excellence (ACE) centers. African university of science and technology AUST, is hosting one of the Centers of Excellence, known as Pan African Material Institute (PAMI), with research focus electrical power, disease detection and treatment.





 Miss Musujusu’s research, using macro-molecular science is aimed at developing bio-degradable polymer material which could be used as 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 said, “My research is actually centered 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.” Sandra Musujusu’s research, using macro-molecular science is aimed at developing bio-degradable polymer material which could be used as alternative for the treatment of breast cancer in the near future. This brilliant student 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. Sandra Musujusu who is actually from Sierra-Leon but schooling in Abuja, Nigeria is conducting the research under the sponsorship of the Pan African Materials Institute (PAMI). According to WHO, cancer accounts for 13 percent of all deaths registered globally and 70 percent of that figure occurs in middle and low income countries. In Nigeria, about 10,000 cancer deaths are recorded annually while 250,000 new cases are recorded yearly. Kudos for her effort....
