BIOGRAPHY (EDUCATION/PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE/PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS)
Dr Sharon O. Azubuike-Osu currently serves as a Lecturer at the Department of Physiology, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Medicine, Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State, Nigeria. She obtained her PhD in Physiology from the University of Benin, Benin-city, Edo state, Nigeria in 2019. She is earnestly looking forward to doing her post-doctoral research outside the country. Dr. Azubuike-Osu’s research areas include cardiovascular and blood Physiology, cell, endocrinology, pharmacology, neuroscience and toxicology.
Dr. Sharon Azubuike-Osu is very interested especially in the working of the vascular endothelium as well as nitric oxide in health and disease states. I am open to collaborating with researchers with similar research interests. I have been working in the University System for over six years and I am making great progress.
