Biography

Dr. Amjad Ali Khan is currently working as Assistant Professor in Department of Basic Health Sciences, College of Applied Medical Science, Qassim University, Alqassim, Saudi Arabia. He completed his Ph.D. in 2005 from the Department of Biochemistry, College of Science, AMU, India. His research interests are protein and antioxidant biochemistry. In his academic and research career, he started working as a Research Associate at Genetic Counseling and Research Center, Department of Immunology and Molecular Medicine, SKIMS, J&K, India. Then he joined as Senior Resident in Department of Clinical Biochemistry at same institute. In 2007 he worked as Postdoctoral Associate in Department of Pharmacology, University of Minnesota, USA. His postdoctoral research was based on the studies of ‘Eukaryotic Signal Transduction Pathways as the Post-Translational Modification Studies of Receptor Interacting Protein-140 (RIP140) and orphan nuclear receptor TR2”. Currently besides academic activities, he is working as a Co-Investigator on a nationally funded KACST project about the effect of some medicinal plant extracts on angiogenesis and PTEN/Akt/PI3K pathways in the diabetic eye implications for the prevention and treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
