Doctor of Philosophy
• Designed and synthesized 7 novel Photosensitizers to induce lipid oxidation in cancer cells. • Designed and synthesized 13 Amino acids prodrugs and demonstrated release kinetics • Designed and synthesized 60 novel anticancer agents using various synthetic methodologies. • Achieved 12,000 folds increase in solubility of a poorly soluble anti-cancer agent by prodrug strategy - this is a major drug developability issues especially if a drug must make it through the FDA. • Designed and synthesized novel compounds that induce apoptosis in cancer cells by reactivating p53 protein.
2004 - 2008University of Lagos
Bachelors of Science (First Class)
I worked on the synthesis of Pyrrolo [1, 2-a][1,4]Benzodiazepine-3, 5-dione. This is a compound that has antiviral activity as it inhibits HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) enzyme and prevents HIV-1 cytopathic-genecity in T4 Lymphocytes without any appreciable activity on HIV-2 cytopathic effect. I underwent a comprehensive curriculum of studies that include chemistry of Bio-active Organic Compounds, Methods of Chemical Analysis, Applied Spectroscopy, Natural Products Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Organometallics, Chemical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics, Modern Physics, etc
