Academic visitor from Nigeria
Godwin Ogbole, Associate Professor of Radiology, has arrived on a six-month visit to the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, as part of the Africa Oxford Initiative. He is attached to University College and hosted by Professor Peter Jezzard, Vice Master.
Godwin Ogbole teaches at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria. In addition to teaching diagnostic neuroradiology to medical students, he works as a Consultant Neuroradiologist at University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan. His major research interests are stroke, dementia and paediatric epilepsy. He is also working on improving brain imaging research in Africa and the potential applications of machine learning.
AfOx strives to encourage equitable research collaborations between Africa-based researchers and researchers at the University of Oxford. Their Visiting Fellowship Programme, which assists African academics in spending time at Oxford, was established to improve academic mobility and network building.
When Godwin first heard about AfOx, he contacted Professor Chappell, who is based at the University of Nottingham. Professor Chappell suggested that Godwin would be interested in the work of Professor Peter Jezzard and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging.
Godwin commented, “In my more than twenty-year career and having visited a number of other countries in Europe and the Americas, I have never met a more wonderful host than Peter.”
