Professor  Helen Asemota, a world renowned Nano-Biochemist and Director of the Centre For Biotechnology, University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica, with over 300  research publications recently visited Redeemer's University in the company of her mentor and intellectual god-mother, Professor Elvira Williams, a world- renowned Nano-Physicist and former Chair, Physics Department, Shaw University,  North Carolina United States of America.   

Speaking at a seminar organized by the Postgraduate College titled: “Using Biotechnology To Boost Development: A Case Scenario of Biomedical Research With Yams,” Professor Asemota said that the application of nano-technology in Biochemistry has become a game-changer by being the bedrock of innovation in Medicine.

She said that through her collaboration research efforts with other institutions and students around the world using nano-technology in Biochemistry, production of yams have been boosted in Jamaica, Syria and other countries where she had worked as a consultant to many international organisations.

Professor Asemota enjoined researchers to collaborate with their counterparts in foreign universities in order to achieve greater research results and breakthroughs.

She noted that visiting researchers abroad are always more hardworking than the indigenous ones. She praised Nigerian students for being sound in theories due to the way they were taught, stressing that this made it easier for them to do well in practical.
