Dr. Anita Ghansah

Dr. Ghansah is a Biochemist in the field of molecular/genomic epidemiology. She obtained a PhD in genetic epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2009.

Dr. Ghansah’s PhD project was based on a severe malaria case-control study conducted in Navrongo (Upper East Region of Ghana). Her thesis began with a careful and systematic analysis of the epidemiological evidence for association with disease resistance, and proceeded to investigate the evidence for recent evolutionary selection. Various aspects of the analysis, and the analytical tools that she developed, have practical relevance to other malaria endemic regions and parasite genetics. Dr. Anita Ghansah

In particular, she developed SNP-based methods of defining sickle haemoglobin haplotypes. These provide new insights beyond what is found with conventional methods based on restriction-fragment lengthpolymorphisms, which raise important questions about the validity of current theories about how sickle cell disease has evolved and spread across Africa.

During her PhD programme she spent time at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics (Oxford University) to complement her epidemiology training and through this, Dr. Ghansah gained a very sound academic foundation for a career in genetic/genomic epidemiology.

The following are her specific arears of interest;

• Using Genetic/Genomic epidemiological tools to answer questions of Public Health relevance in malaria and other parasitic diseases.

• Understanding genetic variations in Plasmodium falciparum, as a causative agent of human malaria infection.

• How genetic diversity influences the epidemiology and pathogenicity of malaria and its implication on therapeutic and vaccination strategies as well as malaria control.

• Using population genetics strategies to identify genetic loci that contribute to drug resistance in P. falciparum

• Development of genomic tools to characterize P. falciparum diversity in the population.

• Human genetic factors that predispose Ghanaian children to severe malaria and chronic kidney diseases

Her projects include; Measuring changes in reservoir of malaria infection in northern Ghana using molecular diagnostic methods, Genetic diversity of Plasmodium falciparum strains in three different ecological zones of Ghana and Inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase Promoter Polymorphisms and Malaria in Children in Southern Ghana. Dr. Ghansah is credited with 25 publications.

                               Professor F. K. Allotey

Prof. Allotey was educated at the Roman Catholic Elementary School, Saltpond; the Ghana National College, Cape Coast; the Tutorial College, London; Borough Polytechnic (now University of South Bank), London; Imperial College of Science and Technology, London and Princeton University in the United States.

He was appointed lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and rose through the ranks to become the first Ghanaian Full Professor in Mathematics and Head of the Department of Mathematics in 1973. While at the KNUST, he held a number of positions such as Dean of the Faculty of Science, Founding Director of the Computer Science Centre in Ghana, Pro-Vice Chancellor and member of the KNUST University Council. Prof Allotey has also held several other local and international appointments such as being appointed by the UN Secretary-General to be among a group of 12 international experts commissioned to advise the UN on Nuclear Weapon.

 

Receiving the Award, an elated Prof Allotey thanked the NMS President, Executive Council and Members for the honour done him.“I also thank the delegation of the Nigerian Mathematical Society, who have travelled from Nigeria to bestow this honour on Ghana,” he added.

Prof Allotey, who is also the President, AIMS – Ghana, said the developing countries of today were slowly waking up to the realisation that in the final analysis, creation, mastery, utilisation of modern science and technology was basically what distinguished the developing countries from the advanced countries. He said the widening gap in economies and influence between the nations of the South and the North was essentially a manifestation of the science and technology gap.“I wish to press here that we need both pure science and technology adding while science helps to advance the frontiers of knowledge, technology helps to advance the frontiers of economic wealth. Both are needed for our national development,” Prof Allotey stated.“Mathematics is the foundation and sine qua non for the understanding the nature of modern science and technology,” he added. He said without mathematical training, Africa would be unable to access the full power of technologies to solve their countries’ numerous problems.

He urged African youth to learn to contribute significantly by researching into extension of knowledge in Mathematical Sciences.

 

Professor Akinwande congratulated Prof. Allotey and the other recipients of the NMS Fellow Awards for being mathematicians and scientists of international standing with distinguished achievements

He wished the Awardees longer life of continuous services to humanity in general and worthy of contributions to the advancement of Mathematical Science.

He said Mathematics was the driving force for meaningful Scientific, Economic, Agricultural and Technological breakthroughs and advancement and so should be given all the support needed for scholarship.
