Blessing Ogboo, 4th year PhD student in Dr. Heppner's lab.
My research focuses on understanding the molecular factors that enhance a compounds activity against a protein in drug discovery and development. Specifically, I develop and study inhibitors of NADPH Oxidases and Epidermal growth factor receptor, to understand the structural features that enable the development of potent inhibitors against these enzymes for the treatment of several diseases.
I love the diverse community at UB, which helps me experience several cultures. In addition, I enjoy the supportive system around me, my PI, lab mates and the chemistry department at large.
I enjoy watching movies and reading books on biblical theology.
