Advancing for a better world
The Foundation suggested that I go to Togo as part of its commitment to training pharmacists, where it supports the pharmaceutical program at the University of Lomé. It was looking for a specialist in high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), a technology used to determine the doses of active substances and identify the impurities in pharmaceutical products. I spent two weeks on site training future pharmacists in HPLC in accordance with best laboratory practices, to improve the quality of the results and enhance safety. Being able to pass on my knowledge to help them progress has given my work another meaning!
