Meet our Alumni

It was a great opportunity to get research experience and publications. I learned many techniques used in the fields of Microbiology and Molecular Biology. The many conferences I presented in, improved my presentation, communication and leadership qualities. I met many experts in my field of study which improved my academic network. I also had the chance to complete my M.Phil degree which was an added advantage !
