Royhaaan Folarin

Mentorship Coordinator

Royhaan is a lecturer of anatomical sciences at the department of Anatomy, Olabisi Onabanjo University, where he also elucidates - in the Neurophytotherapy research unit - the developmental mechanics of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders. This he does in a bid to identify therapeutic alternatives to the detrimental antipsychotics and neuro-palliatives currently obtainable. 

An indigene of Ogun state, Royhaan (known also as Abul-khayr) attended the University of Ilorin for his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Anatomy, and the University of Ibadan for his doctorate degree in neurobiology. He is a beneficiary of neuroscientific travel grants by bodies like Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS), International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), Teaching and Research in Natural Sciences for Development in Africa (TReND), and International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN). He is also a member of several professional bodies locally and internationally.

For his commitment towards impactful communication of science to the Nigerian and African community, he was inducted as a fellow of the African Science Literacy Network (ASLN) in October, 2019.
