I am a first-generation physician who was thrust into Medicine by sheer desire, and not through some Uncle or Aunt who worked in Medicine. In my junior year, I fell in love with the human body and have continued to fall in love with it over and over again.In 2003, a Master’s degree at the University of London, opened the limitless vistas of a research based Clinical practice to me. I saw in that great institution, professors who though were clinically trained had dedicated their lives to finding cures, answers and solutions to some of the world’s greatest medical questions.I, therefore, decided to devote myself to research in Medicine at any opportunity I got. I wrote eleven clinical case reports in my residency years, and continued in active research after residency even while in public and private practice.My transition to research was, however, consummated with my appointment at the University of Mississippi Medical center. My quest, therefore, as a clinical researcher is to explore the deepest frontiers of medical knowledge and train others to follow suitI am happily married to Rita Momah, an employee of the Dept of Health, and have two twin children.
