Sandra Musujusu Discovers Treatment For Cancer Of The Breast by Godson222: 10:55pm On Jul 05
A female student of the African University of Science and Technology, Abuja, Sandra Musujusu, has developed an alternative treatment for breast cancer.
The scientific breakthrough might lead to a lasting solution in the treatment of breast cancer prevalent among women world over.

This was made known 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 Centres of Excellence (ACE) centres.

The World Bank has committed about $10 billion for the ACE project in Nigeria, as part of efforts to encourage conduct of cutting-edge research and specialisation of the beneficiaries institutions in specific development problems faced in Nigeria and indeed the African continent.

AUST is hosting one of the Centres of Excellence, known as Pan African Material Institute (PAMI), with research focus electrical power, disease detection and treatment.
Musujusu’s research, using macromolecular 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, a Sierra-Leonian national is conducting the research under the sponsorship of the Pan African Materials Institute (PAMI).

Out of 19 African Centres of Excellence, 10 Nigerian tertiary institutions won slots to churn out special research works that could compete effectively with global standards.

The ACE universities include Redeemers University, Mowe; Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria; University of Jos, Jos; University of Benin and African University of Science and Technology, Abuja.

Others are University of Port-Harcourt; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife; Bayero University, Kano; Benue State University, Makurdi; and Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

It would be recalled that when the Ebola Virus Disease broke out in Nigeria in the year 2014, one of the ACE centres, Redeemers University served as the testing site before it was brought under control.

Musujusu said, “My research is actually centred 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.”

A female student of African University of Science and Technology, Abuja, Sandra Musujusu, has discovered an alternative treatment for chest cancer.



The development was disclosed by the Educational Director of World Bank, Dr. Jaime Saavedra Chanduvi, when he and his team visited the university on Tuesday July 4 as part of his assessment tour of the 10 African Centres of Excellence (ACE) centres.



As part of efforts to encourage conduct of cutting-edge research in Nigeria and the larger African continent, the World Bank has committed about $10 billion for the ACE project in Nigeria.



Musujusu, who is from Sierra-Leone, disclosed that her research focuses on the aggressive sub-type of chest cancer which is common in African women, triple negative chest cancer; but the research might lead to a lasting solution in the treatment of chest cancer for women all around the world.



Her research aims to develop bio-degradable polymer material using macromolecular science, which could be used as an alternative treatment for chest cancer in the near future.


The Pan African Materials Institute (PAMI) is sponsoring the research.



Musujusu stated: “My research is actually centered on the development of bio-degradable polymers for treatment of chest cancer.



“I will be focusing on triple negative chest cancer which is actually the aggressive sub-type of chest 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.”



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.
