About Dr. Adejare

The major research areas Dr. Adejare focuses on are discovery of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists and gamma-secretase inhibitors. These two mechanisms have been implicated in neurodegeneration as observed in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders such as epilepsy and neuropathic pain. They have also been implicated in some cancers. His efforts have resulted in more than 40 publications, 2 patents, several patent applications and more than 100 presentations at meetings, including presentations at national and international conferences by invitation.

Dr. Adejare received both his BA and MS in chemistry from University of Iowa and his PhD in medicinal chemistry from The Ohio State University. He was a fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) prior to beginning an academic career. He serves on many national panels including NIH and Alzheimer’s Association grant review committees. He also serves on the Editorial Board of USciences signatory publication, Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy.
