Dr Muhammad Arslan, PhD, FPAS, SI
Professor and Director, IMBB

Research Interests: Endocrinology: Metabolic disease – obesity and diabetes; Reproductive endocrinology. Our recent research is in the area of genetics and metabolic spectrum of severe obesity in the Pakistani population. In addition, we are also interested in the effect of metabolic disease on the reproductive axis in consanguineous families. 

Dr Haji Malik Arif Ali, PhD
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.
