Biography: Makafui completed a Master's degree in Food Science. Before coming to MSU, she was a teaching and research assistant at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. She is also the Grant Officer at Dynamic Research Access Media (DReAM), an NGO, which locally communicates scientific research findings to her community in Ghana. She was actively involved in educating various communities on diseases such as diabetes and hepatitis.
