8. Hosted Scientist, Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate, 16-17 February 2016, ADNEC exhibition center, Abu Dhabi.
The practice of Agriculture has since left the level of subsistence to commercial and without Innovation it becomes impossible to achieve. This conference brought all stakeholders in Agricultural sectors from over 200 countries to brainstorm on the way forward in agriculture as to mitigate food and nutrition insecurity, which is very topical.
Start: Tuesday 16th February, 2016
End: Wednesday 17th February, 2016
3. 5th International Symposium: Breeding Research on Medicinal Plants, Vienna, Austria
The unfortunate thing in Nigeria is the fact that Nigerians have not managed and utilized the plant genetic resources in drug discovery and delivery, which is very crucial and critical in health care delivery. Medicinal plants which are abundant in Nigerian Tropical Forest needs to be harnessed. So this conference was very timely.
Start: Monday 18th June, 2012
End: Wednesday 20th June, 2012
2. 36th Annual Conference of Genetics Society of Nigeria (GSN) on Genetics in Quest for Sustainable Agricultural Transformation, University of Calabar, Calabar, Nigeria.
Sustainable Agriculture can only be achieved if there are pragmatic and proactive approach to transforming this sector through genetics.
Start: Monday 15th October, 2012
End: Thursday 18th October, 2012
4. Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology in Africa. Embracing the Agricultural Transformation Agenda: Biotechnology in Aquaculture, University of Calabar, Calabar.
OFAB is established to create awareness of importance of Agricultural Biotechnology. This is became critical because Sub-Saharan African Countries are yet to appreciate this field of study. However, this conference was to create awareness on the import of Biotechnology on aquaculture.
Start: Tuesday 13th November, 2012
End: Tuesday 13th November, 2012
5. 38th Annual Conference of Genetics Society of Nigeria (GSN) on Genetics: Public Awareness and National Transformatiation, Rubber Research Institute of Nigeria, Benin City, Nigeria.
The problem in Nigeria is the fact that the public has not truly understand or comprehend the role of genetics/ genetic transformation in different facets of our economy including Agriculture, crime detection, forensic, health care delivery. This conference gave threw lights on these.
Start: Sunday 19th October, 2014
End: Thursday 23rd October, 2014
1. 30th Annual Conference of Genetics Society of Nigeria (GSN) on Genetics and Sustainable Agriculture, Nsukka, Nigeria.
The conference was poised at sensitizing the populace on the impact of genetics to making agriculture sustainable, especially in Nigeria that is grappling with food insecurity and nutrition security. It was enriching.
Start: Monday 5th September, 2005
End: Thursday 8th September, 2005
7. 40th Annual Conference of Genetics Society of Nigeria (GSN) on Genetics: Agriculture and Health Care, held at Multipurpose Auditorum, University of Jos, (Bauchi Road Campus) Nigeria.
Recently, the appreciation of the impact of genetics on Agriculture and health care delivery has been on the front burner in every discourse within the academia. During this conference, the key note speaker x-ray holistically into new researches that touched food productivity and health care delivery as they are obtainable in developed countries. He compared the Sub-Saharan African, especially Nigeria case.
