Prof Trevor Nyakudya's Remarkable Participation at the 5th International Congress of SA2P

Posted on September 11, 2023

The Department of Physiology proudly recognizes Professor Trevor Nyakudya's significant involvement in the recently concluded 5th International Congress of the African Society of Physiology and Physiopathology (SA2P). This prestigious event, co-hosted by the African Association of Physiological Sciences, was held at Chaikh Anta Diop University in Dakar, Senegal.

Prof. Nyakudya, a distinguished member of our department, had the honor of participating in this noteworthy congress. His attendance was made possible through funding support from both the Department of Physiology and the African Association of Physiological Sciences, exemplifying the commitment to advancing physiological research and education.

During the congress, Prof. Nyakudya made substantial contributions with two thought-provoking presentations that underscore his expertise and dedication to the progression of physiological knowledge. His first presentation, titled "Potential Protective Effect of Neonatally Administered Zingerone Against the Development of Alcohol-Induced Metabolic Dysfunction in Adulthood," delved into the intriguing possibility of using zingerone administered during the neonatal stage to prevent the emergence of metabolic dysfunctions resulting from alcohol consumption later in life.

The second talk, focusing on "Physiology Education," delved into a qualitative study led by Prof. Nyakudya. In this presentation, he explored the intricate perceptions of students regarding the factors that either facilitate or hinder the learning of neurophysiology at a prominent South African metropolitan university. This insightful study unveiled key insights into student engagement and effective learning strategies within the realm of neurophysiology.

Prof. Nyakudya's participation in the SA2P congress highlights not only his dedication to advancing scientific understanding but also his unwavering commitment to sharing insights that can catalyze positive change within the academic community. His active involvement at this esteemed event demonstrates his pivotal role in the progression of physiological sciences, both in research and education.

As a department, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Prof. Trevor Nyakudya for his exceptional contributions at the 5th International Congress of SA2P. We look forward to witnessing the continued impact of his pioneering research and his dedication to enhancing the field of physiological sciences.
