Prof. Oluyemi Akinloye

Oluyemi Akinloye (Stephen) is a Clinical Chemist with research expertise in Cancer Genomics and Molecular Diagnosis. He has a renown and international career experiences in teaching and research in genomics of non-communicable diseases with keen interest in molecular endocrinology and oncology. Within the context of his passion for genomic research in NCDs, he has developed a dynamics Centre for Genomics for Non-communicable Diseases and Personalized Medicine (CGNPH) as a Foundation Director. Therefore, building infrastructures and capacity for genomics research in Nigeria. Furthermore, He is currently the Principal Investigator of Molecular Endocrinology and Oncology Research Group at the Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Medicine where he teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate biomedical sciences students. He has published few of the available data in the genomics of prostate cancer and reproductive endocrinology in Nigeria and probably Africa. He is involved in several global genomic consortium, extensive research endeavours, and collaborations in several areas of non-communicable diseases. 

He is currently running a sustainable summer school for graduate students, postdoctoral fellow, resident doctor, and young faculty members to develop capacity for genomics research in Nigeria. The interface between Communicable and Non-communicable diseases especially cancer and pathogens is his current passion. In addition, he currently engaged in multidisciplinary application of nanotechnology in multiple antibiotics resistance and modulation of cancer microenvironment.
