Personal profile

Summary of Research Interests

Godwin obtained a PhD in Infection and Immunity (focusing on Parasite Biochemistry and Pharmacology) from the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow in 2017 through a PhD scholarship and a MacRobertson travel fellowship to enhance his PhD research at the laboratory of Prof Kita Kiyoshi at the University of Tokyo. 

Following his graduation in 2017, he worked briefly as a Research Associate at Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences in the laboratory of Prof David Watson, before moving to Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT) in the same year to accept a postdoctoral research fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).

At KIT he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the laboratory of Prof S. Harada and Prof T. Shiba (2017-2019) before joining the Teesside University in October 2019.

His research background and training span the areas of Biochemistry, Molecular biology, Parasitology, Pharmacology and Chemical pathology. His present research theme focused on identifying parasite-specific molecular targets for drug and vaccine development against neglected tropical diseases. These include various protozoan parasites such as Trypanosoma, Plasmodium, and Leishmania. On the sideline, he also conducts research on natural products for drug discovery; and bee health and pathogens.

Some of the techniques/skills employed in his research include cutting-edge molecular biology techniques, basic and advanced microscopy, FACS analysis, in vitro tissue culture techniques, in vivo animal handling and disease models, metabolomics, protein isolation purification and chemistry, protein x-ray crystallography, bacterial engineering for protein overproduction, microbial culture techniques, and photochemistry.

His pedagogic research interest focused on effective approaches for reducing the gap in achievement between disadvantaged and advantaged students. This research focuses on four domains of principal influence: instruction, curriculum interpretation, assessment, and community involvement.
