A Lecturer in the Department of Animal Production and Health, Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH), Okitipupa, Nigeria, Mr. Maxwell Adeyemi, has won an International Foundation for Science (IFS) research grant worth fifteen thousand US Dollars.

The IFS, won by the thirty-five year old Supare-Akoko born Nigerian researcher, is sponsored by the government of Sweden for early career scholars.

Adeyemi is on his Doctoral programme in Animal Science at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Nigeria. His research work focuses on the nutritive evaluation of cassava plant meals as diet in life cycle feeding of pigs.

He would use the grant to fund his research.

The OAUSTECH academic was once a winner of the MTN Science and Technology Scholarship Phase II with which he funded his university education for three consecutive years (2010 – 2013).

The Animal scientist was equally a winner of the CLIFF-GRADS Doctoral fellowship sponsored by the government of New Zealand for a six-month stay in the Universidad Technologica Nacional (UTN), Argentina, where he would work on greenhouse gases mitigation strategies of the different diary productive systems of Argentina.
