Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I obtained my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from University of Ibadan in Nigeria, after which I relocated to the United States to pursue my PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, under the mentorship of Dr. Stefan Sarafianos. Given my interest in preclinical drug discovery and development, following my PhD, I further pursued additional training in veterinary clinical pathology at the University of California-Davis, with special focus on toxicologic clinical pathology. After the completion of my residency training, I joined Midwestern University in Arizona, as an Assistant Professor of Clinical pathology (tenure-track), where I developed my research lab, mentored professional students interested in 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.
