Dr. S. Sahabudeen

B.Tech, M.Tech, Ph.D

Research Associate Professor

I completed Bachelor`s of Technology degree from School of Engineering & Technology, Bharathidasan University (ie. currently Anna University, Trichy) and Master’s of Technology degree from SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), both majoring in Biotechnology. Later I did my PhD. in Neuroscience from Nagoya University at Nagoya, Japan. I also did post doctoral research at National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology (NCGG) on Alzheimer`s drug discovery research using transgenic Drosophila melanogaster and mouse models. With this education and training I am determined to explore different ways to find a cure for Alzheimer`s disease. At the same time addressing environmental and occupational health related issue in humans by the means of clinical field study as well as animal model studies. I look forward to have enthusiastic students and interested collaborators to help mutually to achieve our research goals.

Research Grant: October, 2016: Dr. S. Sahabudeen received “Early Career Research Award” from DST-SERB to study possible therapeutics and therapeutic carriers for Alzheimer`s disease.
