Overtime, Nigerians have proven to be blessed in both hands and brains and are not willing to curl up into their shells because we all are meant to show up.
It is on this note that we have discovered another great doing of one Dr Samuel Achilefu, Nigerian Radiologist, a Nigerian -born Scientist and medical researcher who has pioneered both fundamental and applied research in science, engineering, and medicine.
He earned his PhD from the University of Nancy in France as a French Government Scholar and his post-doctorate training at Oxford University in England. He was recruited from Oxford to St. Louis to work for Mallinckrodt Medical in 1993 and joined the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University in 2001, where he established the more than 80-member renowned Optical Radiology program at the School of Medicine.
These mind-blowing profile resulting from quite a lot of exposure, to say the least, has led to this innovations amidst other good moves, he has recently invented a high-tech infra-red goggle that helps surgeons detect cancer cells during surgery.
The goggles are made such that the cells are seen as blue when viewed through the goggles and help to ensure no tumour cells are left straying behind while performing an operation.
Nigerians are amazing.
