Dr Ahmed Musah-Eroje

Dr Ahmed Musah-Eroje (Eroje) is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at the University of Huddersfield in the Department of Biological and Geographical Sciences.

Eroje has a BSc and MSc in human anatomy from the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. After teaching anatomy to undergraduates at the Niger Delta University, Nigeria, Eroje moved to the UK for a government funded PhD in pre-clinical oncology at the University of Nottingham, where he focused on a particularly aggressive type of brain tumour.

Returning to research after  a seven year break, Eroje’s project will focus on certain members of a gene family called the ARHGAPs, which are key regulators of cell migration in brain tumours.

His project is entitled: Understanding the role of the ARHGAPs in Glioblastoma cell migration using a patient-focused tumour microenvironment

Ahmed’s Fellowship is sponsored by the Royal Society and the Medical Research Council (MRC).
