I obtained my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from University of Ibadan in Nigeria, following which I relocated to the United States to pursue my PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Following the completion of my PhD, I was accepted for a residency training program in veterinary clinical pathology at the University of California-Davis. After the completion of my residency training program, I became a Diplomate of American College of Veterinary Pathologists after passing the board certification exam. Subsequently, I joined the College of Veterinary Medicine, Midwestern University, Glendale, Arizona, as an Assistant Professor of Clinical pathology (tenure-track), where I developed my research lab, mentored professional students interested in biomedical research and also taught clinical pathology courses. I joined Genentech in 2016 as a clinical pathologist to provide scientific support for oncology and non-oncology therapeutic safety and development, along with translational biomarker development.
