Dr Akefe Isaac is an expert biomedical researcher focusing on basic cellular mechanisms and/or pathways involved in the development and progression of oxidative stress in memory impairment, and disease-related pathology. His research also focuses on finding alternative antioxidant therapy for the amelioration of oxidative stress and enhancement of memory. He is an expert in cell and animal model (rodent species) studies, used in medical research to investigate disease mechanisms and novel drug discovery. Akefe’s skills in tissue culture, flow cytometry, polymerase chain reaction, histology, liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry, gained by training during his postgraduate research study is useful for disease diagnosis and helpful to clinicians in patient’s care. Akefe is currently a lecturer at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Jos Nigeria, with several active ongoing research collaborations internationally, including Egypt, India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Nigeria, and the USA.
