Hussaini Majiya received his first degree in Microbiology from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria. His second degree in Biotechnology and PhD Biomedical Sciences were in the UK at the University of Leeds. He is affiliated to the Department of Microbiology, IBB University, Lapai, Nigeria, where he taught virology, immunology, microbial genetics, industrial microbiology and food microbiology. Thus far, he has published 4 papers and given 2 oral presentations at international conferences. His objective in life is excellent performance through dedication, hard work, honesty, team playing and willingness to serve on dynamic and result oriented research projects. His main aim as a young scientist is continuous research and development of platforms at the life science/environmental/physical science interface for application in addressing real-world problems. Being an enthusiastic person, also coupled to his background, he has interest in Microbiology and virology especially antimicrobial agents, photodynamic inactivation of viruses, molecular biology and biotechnology. His PhD (Biomedical Sciences) as well as first (BSc. Microbiology) and second (MSc. Biotechnology) degrees have given him a solid training and personal development experience in generic and transferable skills and attitudes. He has an integrated and critical understanding of research principles and methodologies in the Biosciences, and have developed critical skills, both qualitative and quantitative, in the interpretation of data. During his studies, he received training in a range of practical molecular and cellular biology skills that are of broad relevance to many fields in Biology. He is happily married with children.
