I, Dr. Naseem Ahmed, completed my doctorate degree in Biotechnology from the University of Wales in the United Kingdom. During my PhD. Program, I discovered thirteen new diagnostic and therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. I worked several years as a Harvard University Fellow, as a researcher at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center and Boston University Medical Centers affiliated program on preclinical trial research for T cell therapy. I also worked several years as consultant clinical biochemist and pathology laboratory director in various hospital settings. My experience has extended to my involvement in the teaching and training of juniors in several organizations. I have also garnered the opportunity to perform preclinical trial work, population survey for health problems, clinical laboratory test management to prove the health risk, pharmaceutical manufacturing and quality control during pharmaceutical manufacturing process. Throughout my career, I have authored nineteen health and biological sciences research publications in Nephrology, Human Molecular Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Proteomics, Pharmacogenomics, and Therapeutics of Cancer. My long term commitment with science has prepared me for teaching and consultancy in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. My teaching interest and expertise are in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Human Biology, Pathology (Clinical Laboratory Sciences), Pathophysiology, Human Nutrition, Human Diseases, Health Concepts & Applications, Forensic Chemistry, Wildlife Biology, Environmental Science, Human Physiology and Human Anatomy.
