To use my training to provide safe and wholesome seafood that is disease free


(a) Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan (July 1994) (b) Master of Veterinary Public Health, University of Ibadan (April 1997) (c) Doctor of Philosophy, University of Ibadan (July 2006)


Clinician/Consultant Fish and Wildlife Medicine, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria (1) EnviroVet Summer Institute 2008 An Intensive Education Program in Terrestrial and Aquatic Wildlife and Ecosystem Health: Issues and Techniques for the Developed and Developing Words. The Program was offered jointly by the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, the University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine Wildlife Health Center, Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, Sokoine University of Agriculture (Morogoro, Tanzania), Tanzania National Parks Veterinary Units, Arusha, Tanzania , Wildlife Conservation Society, and Ruaha Landscape Program, (Iringa) Tanzania. (2) Use of Biomarkers in Monitoring Aquatic Pollution and Fish Diseases (visiting scientist at the US Environmental Protection Agency Laboratory in Duluth, Minnesota) 2011 We are studying the effects of endocrine-active chemicals on the physiology of model fish species using modern technology and techniques (transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.). This helps to support an ecosystem-based approach to sustainable aquaculture production, prevention and control of fish diseases and food safety which is part of the goal of World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), in ensuring wholesome and safe products for human consumption. (3) Courtesy Faculty Member, Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology. Oregon State University Corvallis, Oregon USA. (June- October 2013) (4) International course in Responsible aquaculture for food security and economic progress at the Centre for Development Innovation, Wageningen UR NETHERLANDS 29/02/2016 - 11/03/2016 I have 20 years of teaching and research experience in the area of fish and wildlife diseases at the university level
