Adeola PortraitMSc International Health and Tropical Medicine

I am studying for an MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford, fully funded by the ExxonMobil scholarship in Global Health.

I am a pharmacist from Nigeria, and I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Ibadan, where I graduated with distinction. Afterwards, I was awarded a University Merit Scholarship to study the Postgraduate Certificate in Global Health (online) by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM, UK), which I completed in May 2021.

I am passionate about Global Health, with specific interest in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Infectious Diseases. My team was one of the 11 winning teams selected worldwide for the 2018 Innovate4AMR global competition hosted by the World Health Organization, ReAct, South Centre, Johns Hopkins IDEA Initiative and the International Federation of Medical Students’ Association. I have also volunteered in several positions with the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation (IPSF), including serving as the Assistant General Secretary for the African Pharmaceutical Symposium (AfPS) in Nigeria.

I have carried out research on AMR, providing AMR surveillance data on Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates obtained from Nigeria’s National Reference Laboratory. Ultimately, I look forward to an exciting career that involves working on Global Health Projects and contributing to research in the field of Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Resistance.
