Dr. Samuel Osei-asante
Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Dr. Osei-Asante obtained a Bachelor of Pharmacy and a Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Analysis and Quality Control from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi and a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Nagasaki University, Japan. His research interests are in, investigation of the scientific basis for the use of some medicinal plants in treatment of diseases; isolation and characterization of active drug components in medicinal plants using mass spectroscopy (MS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). In addition, he conducts research into the potential use of medicinal plants as anti-quorum sensing and/or anti-biofilm agents in the fight against resistant strains of micro-organisms.
