Adebowale E. Ogunjirin has taught biology courses at Gallaudet since 2006. He earned his Ph.D. in pharmacology from Howard University in 2011. He is a licensed pharmacist in Nigeria, having worked at the Pharmacists' Council of Nigeria from 1999 to 2005 as an inspector of drug manufacturing companies.
