Dr. Abdulaziz Tlili.jpgDr. Abdelaziz Tlili received his Ph.D. in biology engineering from National Engineering School of Sfax, Sfax university, Sfax-TUNISIA in 2007. During his Ph.D., he worked on genetic of deafness in Tunisian population. He spent two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Pasteur institute (France). Dr. Tlili joined the Department of Applied Biology, University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE as a Full-time Assistant professor. He taught several courses in biology including Mendelian genetics, general biology, molecular biology, human molecular genetics and supervised several undergraduate and graduate students to conduct their research projects at his laboratory. Dr. Tlili has published several scientific papers through different research proposals granted as principal and associate investigator, in different abstracted, refereed and indexed Journals. Most of these papers were in the area of human molecular genetics. Also he has participated in several local, regional and international meetings to present his work as a talk or as a poster. 
Dr. Tlili is quite interested in working at a prestigious institute of high standards both in academic and research because this will give him the opportunity to establish a research network involving different laboratories in UAE and abroad.

Amir picture.jpgDr. Amir Ali Khan has been serving as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Biology, University of Sharjah, since September 2013. Dr. Khan achieved his PhD in Stem Cells Proteomics from the University of Leeds, UK.  Prior to that, he also obtained a B.Sc (honour) degree in Human Genetics from the same University (Leeds). Following in doctorate degree he worked in the University Leeds and then worked as an Assistant Professor in Quaid-i-Azam University for nearly two years where he had supervised M.phil students to carry out their research projects. He also gained an initial grant from higher education commission to establish stem cells in Quaid-i-Azam University.
Dr. Khan was also a post-doctoral research fellow in the department of Neuroscience in the University of Sains Malaysia (Apex University in Malaysia) where he carried out two projects on mesenchymal stem cells differentiation. He is still collaborating with University of Sains Malaysia in stem cells projects. Dr. Khan regularly visits University of Sains Malaysia and aims to strengthen further research collaboration between University of Sains Malaysia and University of Sharjah.

Dr. Hassen Hadj Kacem received his PhD. in human molecular genetics From the University of Sfax (Tunisia)(2004). During his PhD. he explored the genetic susceptibility of autoimmune diseases by whole genome screening using family and population-based approaches. In 2004, Dr. Hadj Kacem joined the Cochin institute (University Paris V, France) to study the functional effects of mutations responsible of X-linked mental retardation transmission. In 2006, he joined the Centre of Biotechnology of Sfax (CBS-Tunisia) as a full time researcher and during 9 years he identified biomarkers of human complex disease by genomic  (Sanger, NGS)and transcriptomic single (QPCR) and high-throughput profiling (microarray). He installed functional genomic protocols in order to evaluate genomic variations effects at cellular levels. Also, he contributed to the development of the Tunisian DNA variations Database (www.tdvd.org) and the first Tunisian DNA-chip dedicated to the diagnosis of hereditary hearing loss. He authored more than 30 peer-reviewed articles through different research proposals granted as principal and co-investigator. Dr. Hadj Kacem was co-founder and / or member of several departments and research laboratories in Tunisia and in France; of which, GDPM, Cochin institute (Paris, France), Laboratory of Human Molecular Genetics (College of Medicine of Sfax, Tunisia), International Associated Laboratory (LIA135, CNRS-France, CBS-Tunisia) and Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Screening Processes (CBS-Tunisia).

Khalid Bajou Applied Biology.jpgDr. Khalid BAJOU received his Master and Ph.D. from University of Liege (Belgium) in 2001. He spend 5 years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Hematology-Oncology, at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, University of Southern California. Back to Belgium in 2007, he was appointed as assistant professor at the University of Liege. Since Fall 2015 he join the University of Sharjah at the Department of Applied Biology in the college of Science. Dr Bajou contributes to our understanding of tumor microenvironment and the involvement of serine proteases in tumor progression and angiogenesis.
