Microlastics are fragments with distinct size less than 5mm from a broken down large pieces of plastics. It has become a global health concern due to their omnipresence in the environment with unidentified hazards to organisms. Their inert nature have resulted to their accumulation in the environment, and have been studied to be carriers for heavy metals. Microplastics exhibit various interactive outcomes, although, these interactions are not well known, particularly the mechanisms behind these reactions and the risk the organisms are exposed to.
This study will prompt the possibility of diverse publishable projects. Possible projects from this research includes but not limited to;
Moreover, this analysis will aid knowledge of the sources, routes, and ecological risks of MPs and heavy metals.
I graduated from University of Jos, Jos Plateau State, Nigeria with a BSc in Pharmacy in 2010 after which I proceeded for a one year internship at Federal Medical Centre Makurdi. I am passionate about the clinical aspect of the Pharmacy profession, and my love for patient and Pharmacist relationships is the reason I ventured into community Pharmacy practice from 2013 to 2017. The large number of counterfeits and adulterated drugs in circulation was one of the issues I discovered during my community practice that propelled my interest to study MSc in Pharmaceutical Analysis with Management with Professional Placement at Kingston University London in 2018. Becoming an expert in Pharmaceutical analysis and how to dessiminate the necessary information to other health professionals and students that will bring a long lasting solution to the menace caused by adulterated and substandard drugs is the reason for my PhD programme in 2022.
