 Brief Biography:


Dr. Adewale V. OPAYELE
B.Sc., M.Sc. (Ib)

My research focuses on Arboviruses. I design and drive research activities aimed at proffering
solutions to viral diseases transmitted by arthropod vectors, particularly mosquitoes. I am open to
collaboration with scientists from other fields to provide solution to health challenges facing




In Progress:


-   Isolation and characterization of viruses from mosquitoes and patients with pyrexia of unknown origin in Oyo state, Nigeria.


-   Isolation and phylogeny of rift valley fever virus from mosquitoes, ruminants and livestock workers in Oyo and Osun states, Nigeria.
