Efeturi A. Onoabedje completed his Ph. D in Organic Chemistry (2014) from the University of Nigeria, with a research stint at Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales, UK (2013). His Ph.D. research focused on the application of palladium catalysis in functionalization of phenothiazine and phenoxazine scaffolds. He is a recipient of the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) Ph.D. Scholarship (2012) and CSIR-CDRI TWAS Post-Doc Fellowship (2017) awards. He is presently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Pure & Industrial Chemistry, University of Nigeria, where he teaches courses in organic chemistry. Efeturi researches focus in the design and synthesis of anti-parasitic, antimicrobial, and anticancer agents. He is also interested in the isolation and characterization of physiologically active principles from natural products.
