Dr. Sher Zaman Safi joined IRCBM, COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore Campus in 2016.  His research interests lie primarily in the area of molecular cell biology, biotechnology and biochemistry. His current research focuses on the understanding of  biomaterial-induced molecular alterations and epigenetic modifications in various cell lines and animal models. Previously he worked on virology (HCV) and immunology in his MPhil research at National University of Science and Technology (NUST). At the University of Malaya (Malaysia), his research involved “examination of beta-adrenergic receptors signaling in diabetic complications”. He investigated the effect of agonists and antagonists of beta receptors in hyperglycemic retinal and Muller cells. His other experiments dealt with evaluating the phosphorylation of genes involved in inflammatory pathways in hyperglycemic HUVECs. During his postdoctoral period, he worked on various projects as co-investigator. He investigated the effect of Gelam honey on the oxidative stress-induced signaling in hamster cells and STZ-induced diabetic rats. He also worked on a project "ROS production and cell membrane potential in hyperglycemic endothelial cells". Dr Safi has published his research in a range of reputed journals and sits on the editorial board of various journals. He has presented his research in many international conferences and symposia. He has been the winner of prestigious awards and scholarships such as Bright Spark Scholarship, excellence award during PhD and young scientist travel awards.
