National Daily gathered that Sandra Musujusu, a female student of African University of Science and Technology, Abuja, has developed an alternative treatment for breast cancer.
This was made known in Abuja when the World Bank Education Director, Dr. Jaime Saavedra Chanduvi, with his team visited the University as part of his assessment tour of 10 African Centers of Excellence (ACE0 centres.
Musujusu revealed that her research focuses on triple negative breast cancer which is the aggressive sub-type of breast cancer that is common with women from African ancestry.
