Immaculate Nakabugo

Assistant Lecturer-Animal Production & Range Management

I am an enthusiastic individual with a Master of Science in Livestock Development and Planning (Livestock Sector Planning and Management) and a first-class Bachelor’s degree in Animal Production Technology and Management from Makerere University, College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Resources and Biosecurity (COVAB). I have good research, communication, team working, leadership and organisational skills developed through the time I have been working as a research assistant, Project administrator. I am passionate about sharing knowledge in order to bring about a desirable change in the behaviour-complex of people, with a view to help them live better.

I undertook research regarding antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of propolis extracts from four ecological zones of Uganda. Its potential application in livestock health. In that study, Staphylococcus aureus was sensitive to all the analysed propolis extracts while Avian Pathogenic Escherichia coli and Aspergillus niger were not. The effectiveness of propolis against Staphylococcus aureus means that it has the potential for application in prevention and control of livestock diseases caused by the bacteria.

I undertook research regarding isolation of bacteriophages against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli recovered from bovine cases of mastitis. In that study, 19 of the 30 Escherichia coli isolates were found to be sensitive to isolated phages which shows that there is a possibility of developing alternatives to antibiotics in the treatment of bovine mastitis which contributes to the fighting of antimicrobial resistance.
