I've completed my Bachelor's in Biotechnology from Lahore College for Women University, Lahore and M. Phil in Molecular Biology from Centre for Applied Molecular Biology, University of the Punjab Lahore Pakistan. My contributions in the field of Virology and Infection Biology has been recognized at home and abroad. I've served CEMB as research fellow and Genome Centre as Molecular Biologist. I'm the founder and associate editor of journal Bioscientific Review launched in 2019 for Department of Life Sciences. In mere 4 years of my research career, I've published more than 35 articles, all in peer-reviewed international journals of high impact-factor. I've also been selected in competitive doctoral fellowship of Monash University, Melbourne Australia.
