#iPGN: Nigerian scientists develop Ebola screening solutions

A team of Nigerian scientists in the Diaspora has validated and adapted a methodology that will enhance the gene amplification of the Ebola virus in 30 minutes.

This came on the heels of the declaration of Nigeria as an Ebola-free country by the World Health Organisation.

The team, led by an alumnus of Florida Atlantic University, the United States, and a visiting associate lecturer to Bowen University, Nigeria, Olumide Adenmosun, is coordinating technical support for the ongoing clinical and research programme in Nigeria.

This, according to him, is being done together with some other Nigerian scientists and health groups largely involved in the containment of the country’s Ebola outbreak.

The team is collaborating with Dr. Yemi Adesokan, a Harvard University-trained scientist and founder of a Swiss medical diagnostic firm, Bioinnovation Solutions; and chemicals manufacturing firm, May & Baker, to develop and commercialise rapid genetic diagnostic test for Ebola screening and bio-surveillance.
