Mrs Oluebube Nwajiaku

PhD Researcher

Biography

Oluebube Nwajiaku is a PhD Researcher in the Ulmschneider Group within the Department of Chemistry, King’s College London. Her research is focused on the development of next-generation anticancer peptides for targeting individual cancer types.

She earned her BSc degree in Industrial Chemistry in 2015 from the Imo State University and her MSc degree in Chemistry in 2021 from the University of Ilorin, both in Nigeria. For her BSc project, she delved into the synthesis, analysis, and applications of dyes. During her MSc studies, she shifted her focus to the extraction, analysis, and anti-tyrosinase activity of underutilised seed oils. It was during her MSc research in 2020 that she developed a keen interest in cancer research. Motivated by this newfound passion, she decided to pursue a PhD degree with a dedicated focus on contributing to the fight against cancer.

Oluebube started her PhD research at King’s College London in October 2022.
