Congratulations to Priscilla Mante, a member of CARISCA’s research faculty, on being recognized as a Rising Star by the International Pharmaceutical Federation’s Women in Science and Education initiative (FIPWiSE). She is among a group of 20 women pharmaceutical scientists and pharmacy educators from 14 countries named to the inaugural list of Rising Stars.
The recognition highlights women in pharmaceutical sciences and education for their achievements, innovations and significant impacts; for being pathfinders in their fields, and for going “above and beyond” for the pharmacy profession.
Mante is a senior lecturer in pharmacology at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), where she earned her BPharm and Ph.D. in pharmacology degrees. She specializes in neuropharmacology and aspires to find a cure for epilepsy.
