Ogunsola was raised in the University of Ibadan where her father, Akin Mabogunje lectured. As a child, she mimicked medical practitioners by using dolls as patients, while offering medical care to them. She attended Queen's College, Lagos.
Born in 1958, she obtained her first degree from the University of Ife, an MSc in Medical Microbiology with Distinction, and a Diploma in Biomedical Techniques from the University of Wales College of Medicine, Cardiff, a PhD in Medical Microbiology, amongst others.
Ogunsola was Acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos for a short period in 2020 when the University was plunged into crisis as a result of the removal of the Vice Chancellor by the University Council. She was also the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Development Services) of the University, a position she previously occupied before ascending to the institution's Acting Vice Chancellorship.
