Germanus Soh Bah obtained a D.V.M. degree in 1995 and an M.S. degree in 1999 in veterinary science from the University of Maiduguri, Maiduguri, Nigeria. After graduation, Soh Bah returned to Cameroon where he had worked in the Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation as a Veterinary Researcher attached to the Veterinary Research Laboratory of IRAD’s Wakwa Regional Centre since July 2002. Working as a researcher, I have been associated with a number of local, regional, and international research teams. With the local team, Soh Bah worked to identify the causes of low fertility in local cattle, characterised small ruminant species in the Adamawa Region of Cameroon, and set up an open nucleus selection programme for the Ngaoundéré Gudali cattle. With the regional team, Soh Bah contributed in a study characterising veterinary services in the grand north of Cameroon, alongside counterparts in Chad and the Central African Republic, which was financed by France under the ARDESAC project. He initially assisted in the European Union-funded SCOOTT project, Sustainable Control of Onchocerciasis Today and Tomorrow (from 2007 to 2010), and currently, Soh Bah is employed as a Research Assistant with the EPIAF project, Enhanced Protective Immunity against Filariasis, (from 2010 to 2014). Presently, Soh Bah is enrolled on a Ph.D. programme, on a part-time basis, in the Department of Infection Biology, supervised by Benjamin Makepeace, Jonathan Wastling (Liverpool), and Vincent Tanya (Cameroon). the research focuses on immunochemotherapy as a possible new approach to target adult worms in the control of onchocerciasis, using Onchocerca ochengi in cattle as a model system.
