Oluyemi Akinloye, PhD
Department of Biological Sciences
University of Alberta, Canada
He was born on August 6, 1968, in Ibadan south west of Nigeria. He had his basic research training in integrated biomedical sciences followed with master degree in biochemistry and Phd in chemical pathology (clinical chemistry), all at the prestigious, premier University of Ibadan, Nigeria. His PhD research work was on trace elements, andrology and reproductive endocrinology. His first postdoctoral research training was in andrology and molecular endocrinology of male infertility. His research group at Centre for Reproductive Medicine and Andrology, University of Muenster, Germany which is also a WHO Collaborating Research Centre in Reproductive Medicine and Andrology was renowned and popular in research on gene expression in male infertility. His subsequent lecturing and research career at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Nigeria and the Oxidative Stress Research Centre, Cape Peninsular University, South Africa broadend his research activities in reproduction science and prostate cancer.
His research interest is in the field of Reproductive and Molecular Endocrinology. His interest in these field ranges from basic developmental and disease processes in cell and animal models from mouse to rats and rabbits, to studies in humans, with emphasis in andrology, spermatogenesis, stem cell and regenerative science, reproductive tissue pathology and endocrinology. The focuses of his research are: Developmental Biology, Reproduction Science and Cancer Research.
