Abimbola Adedeji

 I have a bachelor’s degree in physics and masters of science degree in materials science and engineering. I am interested in development of biocompatible nanomaterials as therapeutic agent carriers, robust diagnosis tools, and point of care detection for terminal disease biomarkers.

I undertook a research on synthesis of paclitaxel loaded biodegradable microspheres for treatment of atherosclerosis and cancer as my MSc thesis. The results of this experimental work can be applied in vascular targeted therapy for cancer and atherosclerosis.

I joined Nucleic Acids Nanotechnology and Atomic Force Microscopy research group in Udine, July 2013, under the fellowship tagged Training and Research in Italian Laboratories, sponsored by  United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization/ The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (UNESCO/ICTP).  In this group, I performed experiments on nano-patterning of nucleic acids on electronically addressable substrate for bio-sensing and as building blocks for future bio-information technology.

Currently, I am a doctorate candidate in nanotechnology at the University of Trieste, under the supervision of Prof. Giacinto Scoles, working on generation of protein-based biosensors using atomic force microscope. The anticipated results of this work will be applied in the design of highly selective drug (for treatment of disease like cancer, heart disease, diabetics and so on) and the development of protein-based diagnostics tools.
