Work and Research

Dr Oyebola has made an impressive career progression and his research outputs show a high level of innovative concepts. His current research focuses on the cell and molecular biology of malaria parasites with a view to understanding the mechanisms of the parasites adaptation to different environments including antimalarial drugs and human immunity. Dr Oyebola has recently identified potentially drug-tolerant parasites during a therapeutic efficacy study in Nigeria. These parasite isolates do not carry the Kelch-13 mutation linked with artemisinin resistance. He now aims to identify possible alternative drug resistance mechanisms in Nigerian parasites.
