Patrick Adu was born in Ghana and had his Bachelor of Science (Medical Laboratory Sciences) at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. Prior to this, I attended Kumasi Polytechnic where I pursued HND in Dispensing Technology (the equivalent of diploma in pharmaceutical studies in other countries). In 2010, I won a four-year University of Glasgow scholarship to pursue both MRes (Molecular Functions in diseases) and subsequently, PhD (in haematopoietic stem cell biology) at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, University of Glasgow, UK. I have been part of the academic staff of the University of Cape Coast since 2015 where I combines research with teaching. My research interests are mainly in haemoglobinopathies, red cell enzymopathies, immuno-haematology and haemato-biochemistry. I aspire to actively contribute to scientific knowledge through publications in peer-reviewed scientific journal, presentations at scientific conferences and facilitation of CPD programs for Medical Laboratory professionals in Ghana. I am an active member of the European Society of haematology, Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (GAMLS) and a licensed Allied Health professional in Ghana.
