Mapping Covid-19 transmissions to West Africa - with Professor Dr James Adjaye

Updated: May 7, 2022

The transmission of Covid-19 to Africa was anticipated by many to devastate the African continent. But Professor Dr James Affram Adjaye outlines from his research why that was not the case.

Professor Adjaye is the director and chair of Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine in Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Germany.

He has a BSc degree in Biochemistry from University College of Cardiff, Wales. He then obtained an MSc in Biochemistry from the University of Sussex, and then PhD (genetic manipulation and molecular biology) from King’s College, London.

He is also group leader of the Molecular Embryology and Aging Group at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin.
