The project when completed, will help in the diagnosis of disease based on the analysis of bodily fluids such as blood and urine, as well as tissues, using the tools of chemistry, clinical microbiology, hematology and molecular.
President of Tema Rotary Club, RP Alexandre Akrofi made this known when the Club unveiled a signpost at Community 5 Traffic Light dubbed ‘Rotary Avenue’ to deepen awareness of the Club in Tema.
