Stephen M. GHOGOMU, PhD (Head of Laboratory). He holds a doctorate de troisieme cycle from the University of Yaounde 1 where he started his career as a Molecular Parasitologist. He later moved to Germany where his studies on signalling pathways earned him another PhD in Molecular Biology. After finishing his postdoctoral contract at IBMM Gosselies, Belgium, the Molecular Biology wizard decided to return to Cameroon to build up Molecular Biology research in his home Country. He is a Lecturer in the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and also Assistant Coordinator of the Biotechnology Unit.
