Eze Sabinus Oscar, O
University of Nigeria
Dr S.O.O. EZE is The Associate Dean, Faculty of Biological Sciences, University of Nigeria Nsukka, and also the current National Secretary of the Nigerian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, a senior lecturer in the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Nigeria, a Fellow of the Matsumae International Foundation of Japan and a research grant awardee of the International Foundation for Science, Sweden. He did his post-doctoral research at the Department of Parasitology, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, Maebashi, Japan after obtaining his PhD at the University of Nigeria in 2004. He has participated and presented papers in so many conferences, workshops and symposia, among which is the International conference held at the University of Botswana in Gaborone in 2008. He has participated in so many Hands-on training on bioinformatics, molecular biology and biotechnology organized by the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria. His research interests include: purification of proteins, enzyme reaction kinetics and thermodynamics, mechanistic enzymology and production of recombinant proteins and biotechnology.
Purification of plant proteins. He studied the purification processes for obtaining pure proteins from plant sources. 2) Reaction Kinetics and Thermodynamics of heat-induced inactivation of quality related enzymes. He studied the reaction kinetics and thermodynamics of inactivation of quality related enzymes in different food substances. Kinetic and mathematical models were employed to describe the effect of different heating conditions on some of the quality related enzymes and on the basis of these kinetic and mathematical models, multi-response optimization of the thermal processes for the enzymes were carried out to obtain maximum destruction of some quality related enzymes without compromising the food quality. 3) Production of recombinant proteins and Biotechnology. 4) Bioinformatics Here we hope to use recombinant techniques to improve the thermostability of some enzyme for biotechnological purposes.
