A biobank is a type of biorepository that stores biological samples (usually human) for use in research. Biobanks have become an important resource in medical research, supporting many types of contemporary research like genomics and personalized medicine.
These are sectors you probably think you will not find a Nigerian but as you can see we have a Nigerian excelling in there.
Without further ado, let’s meet this young vibrant Nigerian who is the first person to set up a biobank in Africa as a whole.
Abasi Ene-Obong left his role as a management consultant in the pharmaceutical sector to move back to Nigeria to build Africa’s first biobank.
It was founded by the young entrepreneur in July 2019 to unlock the African genome and improve the understanding of the world’s most genetically diverse population.
Ene-Obong and his team are starting from the very beginning as there are no blueprints for biobank on the continent.
54gene partners with hospitals and research institutions in African countries and with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to address the challenge of limited diverse genomics data, which may hold the key to medical discoveries and new healthcare solutions.
Backed by investors including Y Combinator, Fifty Years Ventures, Better Ventures, and KdT Ventures, 54gene aims to equilibrate healthcare for people of African origin while advancing the quality of medical care worldwide.
The business is looking radically to disrupt the $100billion global pharmaceutical industry.
