Olanike Adeyemo

Country of origin: Nigeria Currently in: Nigeria, Ibadan General field of specialization: Astronomy, Space and Earth Sciences
Academic Background


2005 Doctorate Astronomy, Space and Earth Sciences
Research and Profession

Current Research Activities

Astronomy, Space and Earth Sciences

In an increasingly interdependent World population, my research is focused on aquatic and wildlife epidemiology, toxicology, food safety and global public health. I have developed and validated assays for invivo evaluation of genes as biomarkers of environmental pollution and contamination. I have also developed and applied both analytical and bio-analytical techniques to environmental and public health issues; Including research into the interplay of ecotoxicology with aquatic and wildlife borne emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and the implications for global public health and environmental justice within community-based research framework. I have therefore been developing and validating epidemiological procedures for diseases at the wildlife-livestock-human interface and of regulatory and public health importance.
