Dr Godwin Oju Igile was born on the 8th of December 1963 in Assiga Old town to the family of Mr and Mrs Samuel Oju Igile. He attended St Peter’s Primary School, Assiga, Yakurr LGA, and passed the First School Living certificate Examination in 1973 with a Distinction. He then attended St Brendan’s Sec. Sch. Iyamoyong in Obubra and the School of Arts and Science Uyo, where he also performed very well in both schools. He proceeded to the University of Ibadan, where he studied Biochemistry and obtained a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry in 1985. He also obtained an MSc. (Biochemistry) from the premier University of Ibadan in 1991. In 1992, Godwin Igile was awarded a post graduate Fellowship to carry out his PhD research work in IUNG, Pulawy, Poland. He successfully carried out the isolation, purification and characterization of Vernonioside D and E stigmastane-type saponins; and luteolin and its glycosides from Vernonia amygdalina (Bitter leaf). He is the first Nigerian Scientist to isolate bioactive principles from Vernonia amygdalina. He carried out several Biochemical studies of this plant and some of its active principles in animal models, and graduated with a PhD in Biochemistry in 1996. He also attended the Federal University of Technology, Owerri between 2000 and 2001, where he obtained a PGD (Project Management), and an MBA (Marketing) respectively. Dr Godwin Oju Igile has research interest in Phytochemistry & Phytomedicine, and Industrial & Environmental Biochemistry. He has researched extensively in these areas of Biochemistry and has published over eighty (80) academic publications. He has participated and presented several conference papers in local and International Scientific Conferences, among which include, • Toxicity of Vernonia amygdalina leaves, extracts and purified saponins in mice. Proc. Eurp. Food Tox. “Bioactive Substances in Food of Pant Origin. Vol. 2, “22-24 September, 1994, pp. 394-399. Edited H. Kozlowska, J Fornal and Z. Zdunczyk; • “Effects of Ethanolic Leaf Extracts of Gongronema latifolium On Some Serum Lipid Components and Blood Glucose Levels in Streptozocin-induced Diabetic Rat Models” WANNPRESS 2012 Conference on the study of Natural Products for Human disease treatment, July 12-15th 2012, Oshogbo, Osun State (Funded by Committee of Deans, University of Calabar); • “Effect of Washing Red Palm Oil and Low Grade Tallow fat with hot water on Oil Bleachability and Bleached Oil stability. 10th Euro Fed Lipid Congress, Krawkow, Poland, 19 – 23rd September, 2012 (TETFUND, University of Calabar); • “Quality assessment and determination of total fatty matter content in Nigerian Palm Oil samples”. 11th Euro fed Lipid Congress, Antalya, Turkey, 27-30th October, 2013 (TETFUND, University of Calabar).
