Dr Aminu Umar Kura

MBBS, PhD

Introduction

I am a graduate of medicine (MBBS) from Nigeria and I work with various units of different hospitals. In the course of my work, I served as team leader and administrator, these avail me with the ability of knowing how to work and lead a team. My postgraduate work in the field of toxicology gave me the opportunity to work with chemist’s and pathologist. The combination of my undergraduate training and postgraduate studies equipped me with the unique opportunity of interpreting experimental result and making an excellent link with a clinical scenario.
