Dr. Sajad Mir (M.S., PhD.) is an Assistant Professor and renounced Neuroscientist at Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry University of Kentucky, College of Medicine, U.S.A. He accomplished his M.S and Ph. D in Toxicology from Hamdard University (New Delhi, India) with specialization in Molecule and Cellular Neuroscience. He received research training as a postdoctoral fellow from Augusta University (USA). His previous discoveries entail a novel molecular mechanism behind cytokine induced synaptic degradation and memory loss. Scientifically, He has been interested in the development of cutting edge genetic therapies for neurodegeneration in brain and eyes. Technically, He has been interested in development of small G Protein based regenerative therapies for neurodegeneration using transgenic mice and retroviral delivery systems in brain and eye. His research also focusses on the small G Protein signaling in synaptic development and neuronal death. He has outstanding records of scientific and academic accomplishments with multiple research funding, numerous publications in highly prestigious journals and various presentations in both national and international conferences.
