My name is Faridath Massou and I am from Benin with a background pharmacist. I am working on the DIAMA project and I started in 2018 at the University of Abomey-Calavi, Benin, a Master in Molecular Biology which I defended in June 2020. I worked on the comparison of 3 methods of DNA extraction for the Deeplex Myc-TB by comparing them with IS 6110 qPCR.
I am Dr Adekola Adekunle from Nigeria. I worked with Damien Foundation Nigeria (DFB) on the DIAMA project as research assistant.
I want to appreciate The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) for the enormous support given to me to be part of the DIAMA project and also to be able to study at Masters’ level and attain a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree which a “desire come through” for me.
The DIAMA project is sure one of the promising interventions that will bring breakthrough in the world of tuberculosis control and care worldwide.
Thank you EDCTP.
