Date: 2017 - 2022.
The Partnership for Pedagogical Leadership in Africa (PedaL) will design and entrench innovative pedagogy in graduate social science programmes. PedaL is construed as a suite of intentional and integrated interventions in design, context, processes and content of teaching and learning. Systemic change will be achieved through systematized training and networking of teaching staff, configuration of the teaching and learning environment as well as enactment of policy that supports innovative teaching and learning methods. The goal is to substantially improve student learning and produce quality students who are able to create and sustain opportunities that stimulate economic growth and well-being.
- Co- Investigator and Faculty Member, University of Ibadan MEPI Junior Faculty Research Training Program (UI-MEPI-J) funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) Grant Number: 1D43TW010140-01. Duration: August 2015 – July 2020.
The objective of this research training is to support development of early career faculty to acquire sufficient knowledge and skill to conduct high quality country relevant biomedical, clinical, epidemiological or behavioral research for improvement of human health. At the end of the mentored research training period, each trainee will be expected to have completed the core curriculum for research training, conducted a well-designed project; submitted original manuscript for peer reviewed publication; made scientific presentations at local and international conferences; submitted proposal for a competitive grant; and become an active member of scholars in his/her field of study and assuming leadership role in his/her academic unit with active fostering of the next generation of investigators in his/her academic unit or group.
RESEARCH PROJECTS COMPLETED
- Collaborator, Indigenous linguistic and cultural concepts of heritability and comprehension of genomics research in Nigeria(INDIGENE study)
Grant #: 1U01HG007654-01 Duration: 2014 - 2017.
The study aims are to study existing linguistic and cultural concepts of genomics including heritability and their relationship to non-communicable diseases in indigenous communities in Nigeria. To achieve this we want to conduct key informant interviews (KII) and focus group discussions (FGD) to identify existing linguistic and cultural concepts of heritability that are used to understand common heritable traits and diseases in indigenous communities in Nigeria. Also, we want to evaluate the extension of these linguistic and cultural concepts identified in Aim 1.a. to improving comprehension of genomics research of cervical cancer in Nigeria. We hypothesize that linguistic and cultural concepts of heritability exist in different indigenous cultures in Nigeria and these can be identified and usefully extended to enhance the comprehension of genomics research of a typical complex disease like cervical cancer. In identifying and extending these concepts as well as their use to describe heritability of a complex disease like cervical cancer, we will improve knowledge and comprehension of genomics research. The second aim is evaluation of the impact of incorporation of cultural and linguistic concepts of heritability on the comprehension of informed consent in genomics research of cervical cancer in indigenous Nigerian population. To compare the impact of consent forms containing indigenous cultural and linguistic concepts of heritability with that of standard consent forms on the comprehension of informed consent for genomics research of cervical cancer in Nigeria. And to evaluate the perception and satisfaction of research participants with informed consent processes that incorporates linguistic and culturally derived concepts of heritability for genomics of Cervical cancer research in Nigeria. We hypothesize that communicating consent information based on a “social epistemological model” derived from the application of cultural and linguistic concepts will improve comprehension of informed consent for genomics research of cervical cancer in an African community. In applying culturally derived concepts of heritability during the informed consent process, we intend to improve and comprehend inequality and satisfaction with informed consent process in genomics research.
- Local Collaborator, Nigerian Consultants (Collaborators) for the African Collaborative Center for Microbiome and Genomics Research (ACCME) project. Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Services, National Institute of Health (NIH) Project no. RFA-RM-12-006 Duration: 2013 - 2017.
The African Collaborative Centre for Microbiome and Genomics Research (ACCME) is a multi-country, multi-institutional collaborative research involving the Institutes of Human Virology Nigeria and the Centre for Infectious Diseases Research, Lusaka, Zambia in partnership with international organizations including Institutes of Genome Sciences and Human Virology, and the Greenebaum Cancer Centre, University of Maryland, Baltimore; Molecular Epidemiology Laboratory, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, Queen Mary University Of London; Cambridge University, UK; University of New Mexico, Albuquerque; Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, Rockville, MD; and the Centre for Genomics and Global Health, National Human Genome Research Institute, Bethesda, MD; University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Abuja Nigeria, National Hospital, Abuja, Nigeria Covenant University, Nigeria and the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The objectives of the Centre are to collaborate and implement high impact integrative research into discovery of biomarkers associated with cervical carcinogenesis. Specifically, ACCME links and leverages existing funded research and program activities at the collaborating institutions to study the interaction between vaginal microbiome, host genetic factors and molecular variants of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) to determine correlates of viral persistence in the causal pathway of cervical cancer, a major cause of preventable mortality on the African continent. Recent studies by the investigative team have identified variations in the prevalence of types of hrHPV, association with L. iners rich vaginal microbiome and SNPs on RPS19 and TYMS being associated with prevalent hrHPV infection among HIV negative women in Nigeria. This research offers several opportunities to advance understanding of cervical carcinogenesis, viral oncogenesis, new biomarier discovery and risk stratification by genotype. In addition to contributing to knowledge about vaginal microbiome, HPV persistence and cervical carcinogenesis, ACCME also develops capacity by training postdoctoral students to become the new generation of African scientific leaders while empowering hundreds of African scientists to conduct research in microbiome and genomics.
- Co-Investigator, Treatment of Malaria of Different Degrees of Severity at Community Level funded by the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) of the World Health Organization (WHO) 2010 – 2016.

Findings from the study influenced malaria management policy and boost the roll back malaria campaign.
- The effect of the SunMap capacity building programme on febrile case management funded by the Malaria Consortium East and Southern Africa. 2011 – 2015
The study assessed the effectiveness of the SuNMaP case management capacity building programme on the quality of case management of febrile children under 5 years of age attending public and private sector health facilities in Niger State. It was a pre-post intervention cross sectional design with an external control. The study site was Niger state of Nigeria. One LGA from the six LGAs included in the first wave of training was selected based on the assumptions that it is representative of the rest of the LGAs in Niger state in terms of ratio of public: private sector and socio-economic conditions. The control LGA was selected from the 19 LGAs that were included in the second wave of training and it was selected purposefully to match the intervention LGA in terms of ratio of public: private sector facilities and socio-economic status. A multi stage sampling strategy was used to select the study health facilities. The health facilities were classified as public or private and then into secondary or primary health facilities. The number of health facilities sampled from each of these categories was proportional to the size of each category. Observation, exit interviews, in-depth interviews and case study were the methods of data collection. Quantitative data from the structured observations, exit interviews and structured interviews with providers were double entered in Epi-data and validated. Datasets will be analysed using Stata 11. Qualitative data from in-depth interviews will be entered into N-Vivo 8. Content analysis was used to derive themes from the data.
- Co-Principal Investigator, Improving Health Care Delivery in Urban communities in Africa using the Community Directed Intervention approach funded by the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) of the World Health Organization (WHO) 2009 – 2010.
The main objective of the study was to determine if the CDI process as currently used in rural communities for delivery of health interventions will improve health care delivery when used in poorly served urban communities. The study was a quasi experimental multi-country study being carried out in Sub-Saharan Africa in which study teams from different countries implement the study according to a jointly developed, standard research protocol. The study was undertaken in two phases: a formative phase of twelve months to assess current interventions systems in the underserved urban area as a basis for developing a strategy for improving them through CDI, and an intervention phase of 2 years 4 months to evaluate and optimize the new strategy. Based on the results of the formative phase, a strategy to improve the selected interventions through CDI was jointly developed by all participating research teams during the second workshop. The strategy was to be subsequently be implemented in half of the urban areas (referred to in the remainder of this document as intervention or CDI/ URBAN), and evaluated over a period of two years.
