Understanding Disease Mechanistic for Better Drug Design


Dr. Ayesha Fatima

Dr. Fatima is a pharmacist by profession. She graduated from University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan, went to Malaysia for M.Sc and PhD. She worked in the pharmaceutical industry for a short period and took up academia because she wanted to pursue research in drug and formulation development. She has a keen interest in disease mechanistics and designing rational drugs that affect a whole signalling pathway. Presently, Dr. Fatima pursuing her research in Khan’s Big Data and Bioinformatics Lab at BILSAB as a post-doctoral fellow.


Bioinformatics tools have become an essential part of modern medical research. It provides the essential basis for constructing mathematical models of diseases. The development of these models helps stakeholders control these diseases and create essential treatments. With evolving technology, the application of bioinformatics is providing the modern scientist with an economical way of understanding disease mechanisms and designing rational drugs on whole systems basis.
