[quote author=wip2 post=94012229]Research on Rapid-point-of-Use Sensor

My lab is currently building fantastic and commercial viable sensor technologies using molecularly imprinted technologies. The sensor are able to detect multiple heavy metals in various sources, food pathogens and their toxins and cancer biomarkers.


Here are our recent work.

Collaboration with African-based Researcher:

To assist and train interested researchers in Africa, I am wiling to collaborate with few persons interested to carry out research in the following fields:
1. Electrochemical SENSORS
2. Wastewater treatment technology via photocatalysis


The aim is to train the researchers on how to carry out research, write reputable papers and publish in reputable journals so that person can create another chain reactions.

Progress will be disseminated timely


I will put up some characteristics and profile I am interested to work with.


My dear Prof.
At the mention of sensors, the child in me kicks for joy.
I once discussed this with supervisor at Unilag (masters in microbiology), but the prospect is dim.
Pls, if there is a way I could come in as an assistant (just to assist in laboratory), it will go a long way in helping me.

I intend considering this area for my research next year.

If u think it's necessary, I can network the HOD's of microbiology at
University of Lagos and
University of Jos
to join your team.

Please, I really need this.

Warm Regards.

Good day,

Yes yes, any interested person can take Ph.D. with me. If you read some of these posts you can see my research areas. I am also willing to collaborate with Supervisors and Researchers based in Africa or anywhere for knowledge exchange or co-supervising provided the supervisors are not lazy or unserious.

May I know your research interests and background?

Actually am working on our research page to give more details on what we do; personally, I will love someone looking at research-lab-to-market idea.

Good to know and thanks.
Research interests ; biotechnology (environmental, industrial), with major emphasis on biosensors.

Background
Bsc microbiology (Unijos)
Gained little knowledge on some molecular techniques at NVRI (National Veterinary Research Institute Vom, Plateau State).
Msc Microbiology (ongoing) (Unilag)
Here I started nurturing the interest for biotechnology.

But I must say that I lack a adequate exposure to most practical techniques, thus seeking for opportunities to equip my self.

I don't mind if there is any short (few months) internship one could consider to brush up.

Regards Prof.

Biotech field is great and will be nice for Africa as few start-ups in this region.

Currently, biosensor is a great research field and with your background it can fit well. Just will need some electrochemistry exeperience to move up.

Biosensors have applications in the following fields which are often designated into clinicals and non-clinicals:

----Agriculture
---Health and Pharms
---Environmental
---Food industries
---Military

So you need to select which field of interest you wish to work on. If you are located in Nigeria; any of the first 4 listed above will suit you. Then as a researcher you have do background check which is major issues there. I understand that there are Malaria in Nigeria which is common? How much do they test for malaria at Hospital? Can you design faster and cheaper sensor to detect malaria without the need for highly professional person? I understand that many food industries are coming up in Nigeria, can you design fast and cheaper sensors for food poisons or mycotoxins? Do you want to work with the military or Drug-enforcement agency to develop rapid sensing of illicit drugs?

Most biosensors we have developed in my lab cost 1-3 dollars and results is ready in less than 1 min. Particular we developed sensor for detection of aflatoxin B1 in a small company trying to sell dried package fruits. Since they are buying in large quantities, it cost them 2$ per one non-reusable sensor. Which is like 75% cheaper than the common alternatives.


To set up a micro-lab for biosensor, the main machine needed is the reader which is electrochemical stations, few common lab apparatus. It cost me 2000 euro to setup a mini lab for that; most of our projects are targeted in all the listed fields and we have done 5 commercials so far in that field.

So think if which you want to do? I believe some of Nigerian universities should have the electrochemical station.

Thank you for your time Prof.
But you got me thinking. I like the food industry or Agriculture.
I would welcome any window of gaining requisite experience.
Electrochemical station in Nigerian Universities; could just be all theories.
Can the electrochemical aspect be done over there at minimal cost?
Still consuming you memo above.
Thanks for making out time.

Application fees into top universities around the world are too expensive for most students, especially those from developing countries. After spending money on standardised tests, paying another fee simply for your application to be considered can be quite annoying.
In this video, I share how I have evaded application fees by looking for creative ways of getting waivers. These tricks might just work for you too!

We have the electrochemical station in my lab, to be good, one may need to have access to the device, how to use it, interpret the results and many other things.

If you want to get attached to a university in Nigeria and your supervisor there approves you to work on this, we can make video training on the research and you can see when we are ready. But it will make a lot of sense if you are developing the biosensor yourself and testing it in your local environment. For example; if you design a sensor for the detection of illicit drugs, and want to promote its robustness to law enforcement company/agency, you need the portable handheld device with you to demonstrate it.......without that you can do anything. If you will work on sensors for detection of pesticides in agricultural fields, you need the device on the field. Its tiny and can fit into your phone.

First spend time come up with the specific ones that interest you, then you will do comprehensive literature review and from there one can know more what you need to enhance and then the main research can be fabricated.

@ the bolded, I have decided to talk to my departmental Postgraduate coordinator to see how you can made my co-supervisor (if it will be convenient for you).

I want the sensor developed locally within Lagos, if possible within the University of Lagos.
I was making preparations to reach out to Professor Emmanuel Iwoha of the University of Western Cape South Africa (he owns a sensor lab over there) for a short stay in his laboratory ( am willing to pay for all my expenses).
Fortunately for me, I came across here and I never let you go.

The food industry is my target.
How can one subscribe to some of these recommended journals (Springer et al)

One is less busy due to ASUU strike.

My target is to equip myself so I can be competent enough to carry out this research (including interpretation).
I intend publishing some of my work in the mentioned journals.

My dear mentor, all I can say is God bless richly as you guide me to take this quantum leap.

Regards Prof.

If you have the oppurtunity to go to this lab, I strongly believe it worth it. The mentioned professor is doing great job and I understand most African have easy pass to south African labs for research stay with less visa hurdles. Also, having direct practical in the lab will be far better than virtual.

The food industry is my target.

As an individual, it will be expensive for you to subscribe to all Springer, Taylor and Elsevier journals. All universities in Nigeria (I don't know for sure), I belive have subscriptions to these journals. For our end, all universities have subscriptions to all the major journals and when you are using the university internet network you can access all the subscribed journals directly. Also, we have remote access, like I spend time abroad and I can still access my university network configured to on my machines. So ask your university for a remote access VPN configuration.

Recently Published from our Lab: Application of UV-activated photocatalyst to treat pharmaceutical wastewaters

Summary: For decades, antibiotics have been used both in human and animal medicine to prevent and treat bacterial infections and have saved millions of lives from multiple infectious disease. Since most of these antibiotics are recalcitrant, they have been detected in vegetables, drinking water, groundwater and various aqueous environment which is dangerous as they often results in Super robot bacteria strains that shows antimicrobial resistance.

Approach: we developed biochar from palm seeds and blend it with calcined layered double oxides to produce photocatalyst that can be effectively activated under sunlight and UV light sources. The developed material was able to remove 98% of antibiotics within 240 min of simulated pharmaceutical wastewater and 360 min for actual real pharmaceutical wastewater.

Researcher: A Female PhD candidate from Libya that focused on designing effective methods of treating antibiotics and emerging pollutants wastewater; her Ph.D. is funded partly by Libyan government, partly and salary by pharmacy faculty of our university. Supervised by Wip7. The Ph.D. candidate have developed 8 various photocatalysts for treatment of 15 various pharmaceuticals in different water sources. 5 research results have recently been published while others under review.

Publication: This result is published in Q2 Journal with impact factor of 3.3, Citescore of 5.2 and indexed in all well known databases. This is a free journal. Our University research unit and goverment research unit will reward us with a total of 1700$ for publishing this work as incentive.
