Assistant Professor of Medicine
Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science

Dr. Adebowale (Wale) Bamidele received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, then obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics from Mayo Clinic. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. His research laboratory aims to understand the metabolic mechanisms that reinvigorate the pathogenic functions of the adaptive immune system during immune-mediated disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis). Specifically, he is actively investigating how various CD4 T lymphocytes develop and perpetuate chronic inflammation through cellular metabolism and cell-to-cell communication, with the therapeutic goal of restoring intestinal homeostatic balance
