Dr John Chima Ndubuisi obtained his PhD and MSc in Medical Microbiology from the Ahmadu Bello University (A.B.U), Zaria in November 2017 and 2011 respectively. He also obtained the Fellow (FMLSCN, Medical Parasitology and Entomology) and Associate (AMLSCN, Medical Microbiology) of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN) in January 2011 and December 2008 respectively. Before qualifying as an Associate/Fellowship member of the Council, Dr J.C. Ndubuisi had obtained his BSc (Hons) in Industrial Microbiology from the Imo State University, Owerri in 2003.

John Chima Ndubuisi (FMLSCN, PhD) is presently the pioneer Head of Department of Medical Laboratory Science, College of Medicine, Federal University of Lafia. Before joining the Federal University of Lafia as a lecturer, Dr J.C. Ndubuisi worked  as a lecturer in the Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences, Nasarawa State University, Keffi. He also worked with Kaduna State Ministry of Health and rose to the rank of Principal Medical Laboratory Scientist before joining the academia.

He is an MLSCN certified medical laboratory inspector and also have a certificate in Lab Health and Safety with other step-down trainings on HIV/AIDS Councelling and Testing, use of BD FACTSCount Analyzers for CD4/CD3 counts, Sysmex machines for haematology, Roche Cobams Analyzers for clinical chemistry/immunochemistry analysis by CIHP, FHI/GHAIN/USAID.

With his doctoral thesis on ‘Molecular Characterization of Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus spp. Isolated from Patients and Hospital Environment in some Hospitals in Abuja, Nigeria’ he desires to continue his research work in the area of medical microbiology/infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance genes and public health.

Dr J.C. Ndubuisi is a member of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN), Nigerian Society for Microbiology (NSM) and former world outreach student member of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM).
