Dr. Adisa is a Membrane Biochemist and Cancer biology researcher targeting the mitochondrial altered functions and structural indices induced by oxidative stress in pathological conditions especially cancer and diabetes with the bioactive agents from natural sources. She has her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and graduated from University of Ibadan in 1994; Masters in 1997 in Biochemistry discipline from University of Ibadan and a Phd in Membrane Biochemistry and Biotechnology from the University of Ibadan in 2009. Over her eighteen years academic experience, she has conducted research and collaborated with Professors Attah-Ur-Rahman and Iqbal Choudhary in H.E.J Research Institute of Chemistry, University of Karachi, Pakistan in 2004/2005 sponsored by the OWSD Postgraduate Training Fellowship as Junior visiting research fellow. In 2015, she visited the Intracellular delivery solutions laboratory of Dr Simon Richardson in the University of Greenwich, Kent, United Kingdom as Visiting Academic on the TETFUND for Academic Staff and Development Grant. The research was on cellular trafficking of materials through the endocytic pathway using the attenuated lethal factor of the toxin produced by the bacteria- Bacillus anthracis to translocate Antisense oligonucleotides (ASO) across cell membranes of cell lines for a knock down effect on gene expression with a view to eliciting a pharmacological effect for therapeutic purposes. She has worked in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Ibadan (1999 – 2011) before joining the service of University of Lagos (2011 – Date). She holds membership of 7 professional and academic groups.
