Confirmed Speakers

Dr. Bhatti is a Human Molecular Geneticist and working as an assistant professor at NUST. She directs an immunogenetics molecular laboratory. She is also Head of Department Healthcare Biotechnology. Dr. Bhatti received her PhD degree in human molecular genetics from the Quaid-e-Azam University, Pakistan in 2007. She is young scientist and has ~8 years of experience working on the molecular genetics of common diseases of public health importance, including coronary artery disease, diabetes type 2, and arthritis.  She has published more than 30 scientific research articles with IF of more than 80 and her team has contributed in the identification of several genes for T2D and rheumatoid arthritis.  She has been supervised/completed the thesis/dissertation work of ~17 MS and 6 PhD students and also mentored several BS students. She is also the Founding Editor of NUST Journal of Natural Sciences (ISSN: 2072-46592, 2010-Present).
Our research lab contributes not only toward the enhanced understanding about the functional biology of genetic disorders, but also helps in the field of diagnostic and developments of therapies. The lab is mainly focused on investigation of susceptibility genes that influence important human traits responsible for immunological genetic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type 1 & 2 etc. Overall objective is to understand genetic controls of hereditary diseases, especially those which are specific to immune disorders, and how they may control gene expression.
