About Me

Dr. Oluseye K. Onajole completed MSc and PhD degrees from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa, and a postdoctoral appointment in the research group of Prof. Alan P. Kozikowski at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  Dr. Onajole’s undergraduate research group focuses on cutting-edge drug discovery research aimed at identifying new small-molecule chemical entities with potent anti-bacterial and anti-mycobacterial properties. Dr. Onajole teaches his research students to design and synthesize organic compounds with potential pharmaceutical applications. Dr. Onajole sees research as an opportunity for students to apply in the laboratory the organic synthesis knowledge they have acquired in the classroom.
