Chibuzor joined Costello Medical in September 2016 after working as a postdoctoral research fellow in nanotherapeutics at Oklahoma State University, USA. Prior to this, Chibuzor completed his PhD at the University of Birmingham, UK, during which he developed a novel 3D hepatocyte culture model for the prediction of drug metabolism in fish; he also holds an MSc in Toxicology and a BSc in Biological Sciences.

Throughout his academic career, Chibuzor has had a keen interest in communicating science to a wide range of audiences and his experience in this area ranges from working as a Science, Technology and Engineering Ambassador on public engagement and educational outreach programmes, to presenting his research at a number of national and international conferences. During his PhD, Chibuzor won a science policy scholarship to work as a researcher at the National Assembly for Wales; a role in which he produced briefings and guidance to politicians on health related matters.

Chibuzor is looking forward to applying his knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and passion for science communication to the wide range of projects in Costello Medical’s portfolio.
