Name: Ayodele A. Alaiya, MB.BS, MPH, PhD Position: Scientist / Head, Proteomics Unit, Stem Cell Therapy Program, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Current Research Activities: My research interest is directed at Translational Clinical Proteomics and discovery of biomarkers for different diseases in general and cancer and stem cell subtypes in particular. I mainly focus on molecular analysis of experimental cell types, clinical samples from patients; including epithelial solid tumors, hematological malignancies, other non malignant diseases and stem cell subtypes using proteomics approach. My expertise in Proteomics is directed in mapping the molecular alterations involved in different human tumors and using state of the art proteomics technologies as quality control during stem cell propagation and differentiation. Currently I study the complex protein expression patterns that may be decisive for the biological behavior and treatment sensitivity of specific human tumors, biomarker discovery for kidney diseases and annotation of proteome maps for some selected human derived stem cells. I have > 35 publications with in the field of clinical proteomics in peer reviewed journals.
