Dr Stanley C. Onuoha is a lecturer and researcher with the Department of Biotechnology, Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nigeria. He earned his B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD degrees in Microbiology from University of Nigeria, Nsukka and Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Nigeria respectively.  His research focuses on the microbial ecology, evolution and epidemiology of antibiotic resistance, resistance and virulence genes in food, clinical and environment, characterization of microorganisms and /or their enzymes for biodegradation of pollutants, monitoring microbial and physico-chemical quality of surface, ground and wastewaters, screening and characterization of useful plant growth promoting microorganisms from soil and plants and screening for bioactive compounds in plants. He is a recipient of several outstanding awards and fellowships and has won several research grants from various funding organizations such as Matsumae International Postdoctoral Fellowship(MIF) award, Japan in 2016, DAAD Postdoctoral Fellowship award in 2018 ,  Society for Applied Microbiology(SFAM) President’s Travel   Grant Award to the  Summer  meeting, UK in 2016  and Partial travel grant to participate on  theoretical course ‘RNA Structure and Function’ Organized by International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Trieste, Italy in  2014. He has supervised a number of HND, B.Sc and M.Sc students. He has more than thirty (30) Publications from both national and international journals. He is also a reviewer to key journals in his area of research expertise. He is a member of the Nigeria Society for Microbiology (NSM), Biotechnology Society of Nigeria (BSN) and American Society for Microbiology (ASM).
