About Me

Kayode was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and has lived in Nigeria, England, and Canada. He obtained an MSc in Biomedical Science from the University of East London, UK, and completed his PhD in Biochemistry from Memorial University, Canada. His doctoral thesis focused on the effects of dietary fats on lipid metabolism and the risk factors for cardiovascular disease. After his doctoral training, Kayode joined the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute, University Health Network as a postdoctoral fellow. There he investigated the mechanisms involved in the adverse outcomes associated with the use of HIV antiretrovirals during pregnancy, with the goal of identifying biomarkers and interventions to prevent adverse birth outcomes in HIV-positive women. Outside of work, Kayode loves the performing arts and enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. He looks forward to exploring the national parks and historic sites in Utah.
