Pharmacognosy, Cell culture, Bioanalytical techniques, Leukaemia, Alzheimer's disease, Type 2 diabetes

As an experienced researcher with over seventeen experience in the study of the effect of plant compounds on biological systems (the study of pharmacognosy), I have had an opportunity to engage in diverse areas of research. My research areas include cancer (leukaemia and colorectal cancer), Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the study of genetic polymorphism in type 2 diabetes and the biomarker studies in Downs syndrome. I have used cell culture techniques and various analytical techniques, including flow cytometry, fluorescence and absorbance spectrophotometry, confocal microscopy, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, among others, in my research. Since 2013, I have focused my research to the detect protein biomarkers for cancer (acute and chronic myeloid leukaemia), and the investigamore...
