She is a committee member of Uganda Biotechnology and Biosafety Consortium. She is mentoring young scientists and spearheading innovations.  

Debora Wendiro loves science, especially agro-science and her home in Seeta, Mukono is a showroom of sorts. When we visited her recently, we saw several species of local mushroom in her backyard. She is currently carrying out research to see how she can go big on them.
