Show Notes

Hello everyone!

Welcome to episode 89.

 Yannick Agbana, originally from Togo but now based in Nigeria, is my guest today. In this episode, we learn that he did not always know that science was the path he would take; he wanted to be a medical doctor. However that career choice did not work out. He did infact stay in the medical field by pursuing his undergraduate degree in biomedical science in Togo. Yannick discusses his academic journey, which includes pursuing his first Masters degree in China.  Currently pursuing his second master's degree in medicinal plant research and drug development in Nigeria. He tells us briefly about the research he plans to conduct. Finally, we discuss the importance of researchers upskilling themselves by attending conferences and workshops, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of the virtual world.Tune in as we hear about this and so much more.
