Dr Ajagun-Ogunleye obtained her first degree from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Nigeria. She obtained a Masters degree from the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Lagos, Nigeria under the supervision of Professor Osaretin Albert Taiwo Ebuehi. She obtained her PhD degree in Biochemistry from Kampala International University, Kampala, Uganda under the supervision of Dr. Marta Vicente-Crespo and Professor Ahmed Adedeji. Her research revolves around nutrition, neuroscience, medicinal plants, and the role of nutrition in health, ageing and disease.
Her training and research work have been greatly supported by DrosAfrica, Trend in Africa and International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). She is a beneficiary of the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD). Skills acquired over the years include hands-on-training on the use of Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit Flies) in biomedical research, Journaling, Statistical Analysis, Microsoft Office, Communication/Public speaking, Leadership and Teamwork.
Teaching and mentoring are intrinsic part of her academic career, with the privilege of lecturing medical and paramedical students both within and outside Nigeria. Doing what she loves doing best and witnessing the successes of her students/mentees are some of her great achievements.
