Young Scientist of the Month

We’re happy to announce that Kwabena Owusu-Boateng is our first winner of the QIAGEN Young Scientist of the Month contest. Kwabena is currently a graduate student at WACCBIP, University of Ghana. With his QIAGEN prize, he will continue his study of host-pathogen co-adaptation and pathogen immune evasion mechanisms, as well as protein–protein interactions, that could play a role in the pathogenesis of M. ulcerans – a mycobacterium responsible for “Buruli Ulcer”.

This chronic debilitating disease can result in severe disfigurement and in extreme cases, auto-amputation of limbs. According to the WHO, the disease is on the increase and has been reported in 33 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Western Pacific. The mode of transmission to humans remains unknown and there is no prevention for the disease.
