Respirator Innovation Wins Nigeria Science Award

Date:

Yesterday, The Nigeria Prize for Science’s Advisory Board celebrated Professor Hippolite Amadi’s work in newborn respiratory technology. His innovation secured the prestigious 2023 prize valued at $100,000, generously sponsored by Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG).

Professor Barth Nnaji, who chairs the Advisory Board, revealed the judges’ unanimous decision during a press conference, aligning with this year’s theme: “Innovation For Enhancement Of Healthcare Therapy.”

Mr. Andy Odeh, NLNG’s General Manager for External Relations and Sustainable Development, highlighted the significance of the collaboration among the private sector, academia, and the broader scientific community in selecting Professor Amadi.

He emphasised the importance of nurturing and supporting innovative solutions; affirming that this aligns perfectly with NLNG’s vision of contributing to a “better Nigeria,” where creative ideas thrive, and every life is valued and safeguarded.

Professor Nnaji, referencing the judges’ assessment, pointed out that Professor Amadi’s work not only advances neonatal care in Nigeria but also improves accessibility, and reduces the cost of neonatal care by driving down market prices of existing devices.

 

Professor Hippolite Amadi, a visiting professor at Imperial College, London, known for his work in developing affordable medical systems, emerged as the winner after careful evaluation by a panel of judges led by Professor Joseph Ahaneku of Chemical Pathology at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.
