2. Invention of an anti-electricity power theft device by Dr. Akorede from the Department of Electrical/Electronics;

3. Innovation of an oil spillage management product by my humble self, which has been patented and commercialised;

4 . Fabrication of a machine capable of producing different shapes of pencil in commercial quantities by Dr. Ajimotokan from the Department of Mechanical Engineering;

5. Discovery that could be developed further as a potential treatment or cure for Tuberculous by Mistura Lawal-Arowona, one of our PhD. students in the Department of Chemistry;

6. Discovery that could be developed further as a potential cure for cancer by Professor Obaleye in the Department of Chemistry;

7. Breakthrough in Genomics/Biotechnology by Professor Kolawole, Department of Microbiology and the Director of the Institute of Molecular Science and Biotechnology. The discovery would facilitate the much-needed portability, affordability, low voltage consumption, on-site view of standard DNA marker and two sources of illumination for better result presentations and recording with a third battery-operated LED light that will help in improving health-care delivery;

8. Development of hybrid fuel briquelte from coal fines and torrefied woody biomas by Drs Adeleke, Odusote, and Lasode;

13. Invention of a Teacher Led Vision Screener (TELVIS) device for the detection of sight challenges in children by Dr. Dupe Ademola-Popoola at the College of Health Sciences. The device has also been patented;

14. a scientific breakthrough with the isolation of two novel biodegrading and bio-remediating bacterial that could be useful in oil spillage mop-up operation;

15. nvention of image processing Algorithm for forensic analyses by Akinolu Raji, already patented;

16. Invention of a deep fryer equipped with cooking oil recyclable mechanism, which has also been patented;

17. Invention of electronic eye walking stick for the blind by an undergraduate student of Biomedical Engineering; and

18. Patenting of a two-way trans-illuminator viewing documentation system by Professors Kolawole, Sulaiman and Ogah. READ ALSO:VC breaks silence as UNILORIN finally joins ASUU

19. More interestingly, our health experts led by Professor Munirudeen Ijaiya in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology developed a new VVF treatment in the late 2018. This, indeed, is a breakthrough, which is a further revalidation of what we stand for and the height we aspire to reach
