Abigail Dankwah Ntiamoah is a program assistant with the Programs for Biosafety Systems (PBS), a project facilitated by the International Food Policy Research Institute. She is the focal person for monitoring Ghanaian media stories related to biotechnology and biosafety and also takes part in PBS training and workshop programs for the media, judicial service, farmers and farmer-based organizations, and academic institutions.
She holds a Bachelor of Science in molecular biology and biotechnology from the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. Abigail is a firm believer in the promise that agricultural biotechnology holds for Africa and thinks that the ability of ag biotech to increase crop yields by reducing pest infestation, develop highly nutritious crops and increase food production will go a long way toward making Africa food secure. She hopes her participation in the Fellows program will give her better communication skills and evidence-based information to pilot agriculture innovation through biotechnology.
