Intracellular Pathogens/Parasitology



After obtaining my PhD in 2014 I have continued to publish in the field of immunoparasitology and genetic susceptibility to disease. My focus has been on the diseases causing health problems within my home country of Pakistan. I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Zoology, Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad, Pakistan. My work reflects my interest in the host parasite interaction and using this fine and antigen-specific interaction to develop tools to control disease. I have reached a critical point in my career where I would like to garner greater cellular and molecular understanding of the immune system and to better understand how to use the immune system as a tool to control disease.
