Biography: 

Dr Innocent Ohiorenuan Imosemi graduated with B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Human Anatomy (second class, upper division) from the University of Calabar (1995), obtained a M.Sc. in Anatomy from the University of Ibadan (2001) and a Ph.D. also in Anatomy from the Lagos State University (2011). He received the CONACYT-TWAS postdoctoral fellowship award, 2014 for the advancement of science in developing countries, to pursue a postdoctoral research programme in Mexico. He trained under the supervision of Professor Carolina Escobar at the Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, National Autonomous University (UNAM) of Mexico from April, 2015-March, 2016. During his postdoctoral training, he learnt the immunohistochemical technique which he used in evaluating the role of Vernonia amygdalina leaf extract in monosodium glutamate-induced oxidative stress in the developing cerebellum of Wistar rats. Dr Imosemi joined the academic staff of the Department of Anatomy, University of Ibadan in 2001 as an Assistant lecturer. He was promoted to lecturer II in 2005, lecturer I in 2008, Senior Lecturer in 2013, Reader in 2018 and has applied for full Professor, 2022. He has been actively involved in teaching, research and community service. He was the coordinator of the B. Pharmacy programme in the Department, 2005-2022, the immediate past Departmental Postgraduate coordinator, April, 2017-February, 2022 and currently the Sub-Dean Postgraduate of the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, 2022 to date. He has published over 45 peer-reviewed articles in both local and international journals. He was a member of congregation at Senate, University of Ibadan, 2014-2016 and 2018-2020. Dr Imosemi is a member of the following learned society; Anatomical Society of Nigeria, ASN, Anatomical Society of West Africa, ASWA, Neuroscience Society of Nigeria, NSN, Society of Neuroscientists of Africa, SONA, American Association for Anatomy, AAA and Anatomical Society of the United Kingdom. He is married to Dr Adekunbi F. Imosemi, an Associate Professor of Law, Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, and the marriage is blessed with children.

Title: Neuroprotective effects of Omega-3 oil against aluminium chloride-induced oxidative stress in the hippocampus and cerebellum of adult Wistar rats

Funder: Department research grant

Brief Summary: Aluminium (Al), presents in many manufactured foods and medicines and also added to drinking water for purification purposes has been reported to be neurotoxic in human and animals. Environmental pollution with different aluminium containing compounds, especially those in industrial waste, exposes people to higher-than-normal levels of Al. Although, aluminium has been implicated in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinsonism, Dementia complex and causes extensive damage to the nervous system, to date the mechanism of Al neurotoxicity has not been fully elucidated. Aluminium is a possible contributing factor in Alzheimer’s disease. Evidence for the contribution of Al to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) remains contradictory. However, epidemiological studies have indicated a link between Al in drinking water and AD, and a variety of human and animal studies have implicated learning and memory deficits after Al exposure. Also, aluminium chloride exposure has negative effects on behaviour of adult Wistar rats.  Therefore, strategies to attenuate Al-induced impairments could provide a potential protective and therapeutic intervention for its neurotoxicity. The study tends to ascertain if Omega 3 oil possessing high flavonoid and polyphenolic contents will offer protective effects to hippocampus and cerebellum of adult rats exposed to aluminium chloride.
