Biography

Dr. Arthur obtained his PhD at the University of Göttingen in Germany. He has undertaken short-term post-doctoral studies at the University of Maryland – College Park and the ETH-Zurich, Switzerland. He is currently a Lecturer at the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, University of Ghana.

 
Project Name
Drug Discovery for Tuberculosis
 
Research Interest
Dr. Arthur’s research is in the area of Infection and Chemical Biology and Proteomics.He isolates bioactive metabolites produced by fungi for application as anti-infective agents. He alsouses mass spectrometry based proteomics and advanced imaging techniques to study the mechanism ofaction and the cellular effects of novel bioactive compounds.
 
Projects
