Dr Omolola A. Adesanoye is a researcher and tutor dedicated to building student's confidence and competence in complex biochemical principles and methodologies for improved educational success. I offer expertise in drug metabolism and toxicology research to aid further understanding and development in molecular and biochemical mechanisms of toxicities of environmental pollutants and disease causative agents. I have a great passion and concern to understand the molecular basis of diseases and possible intervention to promote a more healthy society through multidisciplinary approach or research


Research Interest

1. Chemopreventive and therapeutic uses of natural products, especially medicinal plant in the amelioration/treatment of drugs and chemical-induced tissue and organ damages.

2. Molecular and biochemical mechanisms of toxicities of environmental toxicants and the possible ameliorative agents.


1. Antioxidant and hepato-protective effects of the methanolic extract of Vernonia amygdalina against CCl4- induced liver damage in rats.

2. Anti-hemolytic effect of Vernonia amygdalina in Human red blood cells.

3. Modulatory effect of Vernonia Amygdalina on some free radical-induced diseases.

4. Antioxidant and Chemoprotective properties of Vernonia amygdalina against 2-AAF-induced organ damage.

5. Structural elucidation of crude methanolic extract of Vernonia amygdalina.

6. In vivo and in vitro antioxidant properties of Vernonia amygdalina.

7. Modulatory effect of Vernonia amygdalina on Allyl Alcohol-induced liver and kidney injuries in rats.

8. Ameliorating potentials of Vernonia amygdalina on toxicological effects of Hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) in rats.

9. Cardio-Renal effect of combined administration of hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) and ethanol in Wistar rats; possible protective effects of Vernonia amygdalina.

10. Toxicological effects of Bisphenol-A in male and female rats; possible ameliorative effects of luteolin and Vernonia amygdalina extract.
