Maroof-HusainInstructor

Research and Clinical Interests
Lung Injury and Repair; Host-Pathogen Interactions

Dr. Husain’s research goals are grounded in understanding biochemistry of animal and bacterial systems in health and diseases. He has pursued research in the area of biochemical neurotoxicology with aims to validate blood platelets as peripheral neuronal model.

Dr. Husain's current research uses diverse approaches in several areas of biology:

  • Cellular metabolism, electron transport chain, bacterial biochemistry, bacterial physiology, enzymology, gene regulation
  • Cellular respiration, Hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide assay
  • Genetic manipulation, gene deletion, chromosomal affinity tagging,
  • Protein expression, purification, protein chemistry, assay of redox potential and pKa of protein cysteine. Protein-protein interaction assay, DNA protein interaction assay, in vitro transcription assay, thiol oxidations assay.
  • Nitric oxide biology, oxidative stress
  • Through understanding host pathogen interaction,
  • Grant and research paper writing, Research paper presentation on diverse platforms.
  • Project management, establishing scientific collaborations
  • Supervising and teaching postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D students.
