Professor
Physiology
agonaobembe@unical.edu.ng

I am a professor in the department of physiology Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences. My area of specialization is in Gastrointestinal Physiology with vast research on the effect of Cannabis Sativa on the Gastrointestinal Tract function and other systems ( Reproductive and Endocrine). With a Ph.D in Gatrointestinal Physiology, MSc in Renal Physiology. I have been the Hod of Physiology and the sub Dean of the faculty of Basic Medical Science,and presently member of the university debating society. i have 3 Ph.D, 5 Msc and 10 Pgd Student with complete research work and many others ongoing.
