I am working as Assistant Professor at Department of Life Sciences, University of Management and Technology. My area of specialization involves the prediction of therapy response against infectious diseases using the molecular diagnostic techniques, Elaborated as elucidating the immune response generated by viral infections which influences the immune surveillance using the Cellular and humoral cell immunity to eradicate the viral infections, which is evident from my PhD research work. I got my PhD in Biochemistry from Institute of Biochemistry & Biotechnology at The University of Punjab, Lahore and research work was performed at Center for Integrated Genomic Medical Research and The Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre, University of Manchester, U.K. Ph.D thesis entitled “Interleukin 28-B Polymorphism Associated with HCV Treatment Induced Viral Clearance”.Currently I am involved in designing a non-invasive molecular diagnostic tests for early detection of cancer.
