DFC is a home away from home

Beverly Egyir, PhD, University of Copenhagen, Research Fellow at Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, University of Ghana

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
