These team included two Ethiopian senior scientists. ዮናስ አበበ (YONAS ABEBE) and አለምታዬ አንዳርጌ ዮሴፍ (ALEMTAYE ANDARGE YOSSEF). Their research was published in a Journal named ‘Nature’.
Nature is a top and prestigious scientific Journal where only ground breaking result with prestigious academic merit get published. It has the highest impact score and is a life time dream for many scientists around the globe to get their work published there.
Sometimes we get caught up in Ethnic issues and forget to give spotlight to such incredible people who make an outstanding contribution and put our country name in the front lines and make history. I am honored to be an Ethiopian when I see such incredible talent and valuable contribution and we owe them a thank you and recognition.
Their findings has been named ground breaking in the fight against malaria. Malaria is responsible for more than 600,000 deaths per year, mostly in children in Africa, differentially adversely affects pregnant women on the continent, and is responsible for numerous hospitalizations and billions of dollars spent on Control and treatments.
To mention more about these two Ethiopians, ALEMTAYE has been recognized in the past February by Sanaria Inc. for her outstanding leadership and extra effort in securing research materials required for the study during covid time reaching out to various manufacturers in the country so this study is conducted without interruption. She has also been named very well organized and reliable person. YONAS also a dedicated scientist proving his contributions.
Publishing in the Nature Journal is as close as winning a noble peace prize for scientists.
