Teaching faculty at Lom? University, Microbiology, Biotechnology and Genetic
Banfitebiyi GAMBOGOU is currently working as an assistant Temporary teacher and researcher at Ecole Superieure des Techniques Biologiques et Alimentaires, Lomé University. He completed his Ph.D Microbiology, Biotechnology and Genetic at Lomé University - TOGO, the years 2019. Their research field is natural bioactive substances, the genetic resistance and pathogenicity of microbial strains and the microbiological quality of foodstuffs. He has shared his scientific skills since 2018 at the Higher Institute of Administration of Economic Sciences and Management (ISAGES) in Pharmaceutical Microbiology and at the National Institute of Agronomic Training (INFA) in applied biotechnology. Reviewer in several international Journal, Scientific Member of several scientifics societies. Since 2018, he has published eight scientific articles and participated in scientific events. After obtaining his master's degree in molecular and cellular biology at Annaba University during the year 2014 and bachelors in applied microbiology at Annaba University, Algeria during the year 2012, he participated in additional training in quality management in Medical Biology laboratories (ISO 15189: MOOC BioMérieux) and in Quality assurance into Research Institutions Training at Ouaga I Joseph Ki-Zerbo University.

University at Buffalo, USA
He is an Assistant Professor of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the University at Buffalo. He received BS in Biotechnology from Ajou University (Korea), MS in Biochemical Engineering from Rutgers University and PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh (Dissertation title: A novel inhibitory pathway linking profilin-1 and breast cancer cell motility). After completing a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania (Research work: The role of extracellular matrix (ECM) stiffness-mediated mechanosensing on cell cycling), he began his independent academic career at the University at Buffalo State University of New York.His work has focused on the rapidly growing area of cell mechanics and mechanotransduction. He has been particularly interested in understanding the effect of changing(ECM) stiffness because many pathological microenvironments, such as those seen in tumors and cardiovascular disease, are stiffer than their physiological counterparts. He has shown that a stiff ECM contributes to pathological behaviors such as increased migration and proliferation. His areas of biomechanical expertise include atomic force microscopy of cells and the use of bioengineered hydrogels to model tissue stiffness in vitro.
