Adeola graduated from the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria with a first class degree in Pharmacy. She then obtained a distinction in her Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Science at Aston University, Birmingham, UK in 2009. She was awarded a PhD in 2014 by the University of Huddersfield. Her PhD thesis was titled, “Design of gastro-retentive systems for the eradication of helicobacter-pylori infections in the treatment of peptic ulcer” and was supervised by Professor Barbara Conway. Adeola worked on various research projects and teaching upon completion of her PhD in the Department of Pharmacy prior to her appointment by the University of Huddersfield as a Post-doctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Pharmacy in May 2015.
Adeola’s research interests are primarily in the area of targeted oral drug delivery systems with emphasis on gastroretentive drug delivery systems in the form of surface-modified or conjugated beads, microparticles and nanoparticles to enhance the gastro-retention of delivery systems. In addition, recent research focuses on modification of natural or synthetic polymers to enhance their gastroretentive properties. Other areas of interest include particle engineering of poorly soluble drugs to enhance their solubility and stability profiles, design of in vitro drug diffusion models and assessing the pharmaceutical applications of natural polymers.
