Dr. Muhammad Zubair is an experienced professional with over 11 years of cutting-edge laboratory research and teaching experience in prestigious institutions globally. He obtained his PhD in biomedical sciences with a major in bioinformatics from Katholieke University Leuven (KUL), Belgium, which ranked 70th in the world according to QS-2022. His 4-year doctorate was fully funded by the Flanders research foundation (FWO) Belgium. In his doctorate, he had mainly explored the anatomical connections of the ventral midbrain dopamine system. Moreover, he used his advanced programming skills to analyze functional magnetic resonance imaging data to investigate the effect of non-visual effector on early visual cortical areas. Previously, he was awarded MS and BSc degrees in computer engineering from the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) and the Islamia University of Bahawalpur, respectively.

Zubair’s interdisciplinary research allows him to work collaboratively with numerous research experts from different countries, including the UK, Belgium, USA, Denmark, New Zealand, Pakistan and Japan. His academic and translational research experience helped him secure research grants from international research foundations and prestigious institutes, including FWO, Aalborg University and New Zealand College of Chiropractic, NUST, Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan, and Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS).
