Asif M. Khan
Asif M. Khan received his Ph.D. degree in 2010 from the National University of Singapore. He has been involved in the development of numerous novel methodologies (e.g., analysis of antigenic diversity and systematic approach for vaccine target selection), tools (e.g., AVANA, VAGAT, Hotspot Hunter, and Multipred), and specialized databases (e.g., Antimic and T3SEdb). He is particularly interested in the application of bioinformatics, together with experimental work, to better understand adaptive human immune responses to pathogens and aid in the selection of targets for vaccine and/or therapeutic formulations. Khan is currently an Assistant Professor in bioinformatics at the Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine (PUGSOM), Malaysia, with an adjunct Assistant Professor appointment at the Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM), USA. His research interests are in the area of biological data warehousing and applications of bioinformatics to the study of immune responses, vaccines, venom toxins, drug design, and disease biomarkers.
