DFC is a home away from home
In 2010, I got an opportunity to begin a journey that shaped my
scientific career; with funding from DANIDA through the Antibiotic Drug Use
and Monitoring and Evaluation of Resistance (ADMER) Project, I obtained my
PhD in Molecular Bacteriology and Infection from the University of
Copenhagen, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. During half of my PhD
period, I stayed at the DANIDA fellowship Centre (DFC); a beautiful place
with a serene environment, and home away from home.
I currently work as a Research Fellow at Noguchi Memorial
Institute for Medical Research, University of Ghana with a research focus on
understanding the epidemiology of antibiotic resistant bacteria species,
especially Methicillin Resistant Staphylococci.
It was another exciting feeling to stay at DFC again whilst attending a
conference recently held in Copenhagen. At this International Symposium on
Staphylococci and Staphylococcal infections, I presented some of my current
research findings. The conference was great!
My stay at DFC awoken pleasant memories from the period of my
PhD. I really enjoyed my stay at DFC! It was also great to visit Denmark
