Professor and Associate Vice Chair for Research
Dermatology Research Laboratories
The long-term goal of Ahmad laboratory is to be able to make an impact on the quality of human life through cutting-edge biomedical research. To achieve this goal, we want to define the critical molecular and biochemical events in the process of cancer development that will help us identify the targets for disease management. Using this knowledge, we want to be able to develop new approaches and strategies, which could ultimately be translated from the bench to the bedside, for the prevention and/or treatment of cancer. Thus, our research is focused on two broad and complimentary research areas; 1) cancer biology, and 2) prevention and experimental therapeutics of cancer.
