LIST OF FACULTY

University of Lahore

Pro. Dr Malik Arif Ali, PhD
Professor/Director, IMBB/CRiMM
Research Interests: My research interests and expertise include: Biochemistry and Physiology of stress tolerance. My work ranges from basic pathological basis to explore new circulating biochemical markers to redesign etiologies of different diseases under stress to education; medical community, policy-makers, and the general public. The other research interest is to use genomics, biochemical and computational models to elucidate the mechanisms involved in abiotic/biotic stress tolerance and designing of new drugs for different diseases from natural sources; My special focus is on Hepatitis, different types of cancers, diabetes and complicated pregnancies.
