After completing my PhD, I returned to Nigeria to lead a small group in the epidemiology of NCDs, focusing on Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa. I recently developed the NCDs data profile for Nigeria, a project commissioned by the World Health Organization’s country office and the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health. I am a recipient of a number of international awards including the US Carnegie fellowship, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) for African researchers, and the African Organization for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) emerging leaders’ award.
