Michael Arowosegbe graduated from Lagos State University, Ojo with a first-class in
Biochemistry and as the overall best graduating student and valedictorian at the 20th LASU
convocation ceremony. He has published 5 research articles in his field with two other
manuscripts currently submitted for publication. Michael held several leadership positions
during and after his undergraduate studies. He is currently a drug development research
mentor at the Hackbio Bioinformatics Virtual Internship with participants from over 10 nations
of the world. Michael was considered and selected for the OFP program by EducationUSA
Lagos. He was admitted with a graduate assistantship to the Arizona Biological and Biomedical
Science Ph.D. Program, the University of Arizona in 2020. During this program, he will have the
opportunity to rotate between laboratories working on cancer drug research in a multi-
disciplinary environment. His projects would be centered on the development of new targeted
cancer drug candidates, hopefully from natural products, against common types of cancers. In
his words, "EducationUSA Lagos made my application journey way less stressful by providing
the best resources for each stage of the process. I had the opportunity to learn how to research
my options, contact Professors, and write a winning personal statement from the wonderful
Advisors. The dynamic community of scholars was quite inspiring and I will always be grateful
for the EducationUSA OFP."
