            Dr. Ali Jawaid is a physician-scientist with training in both clinical and basic neuroscience. He completed his medical studies from Aga Khan University, Karachi, Pakistan in 2007, and followed it up with clinical/research training in Neurology from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA. He then proceeded to complete an MD-PhD in Neuroscience from Switzerland (simultaneous PhD degrees awarded by UZH/ETH International Program in Neuroscience and UZH MD-PhD program). Ali has worked extensively in the fields of memory, dementia, neurodegenerative disorders, neuroepigenetics, neurodevelopmental disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and addiction. He has authored 60+ pubmed publications and four book chapters, and has received awards and honors from multiple academic organizations. He has published in Science, Nature Neuroscience, Neuron, Nature Communications, and Molecular Neurobiology and has a current H-index of 16 (he has 16 papers, which have been cited at least 16 times). He also chaired the European MD-PhD association between 2016 and 2018, and is a fiction author outside of scientific work.

Ali is a very strong proponent of translational science, mechanistic and ‘proof of concept’ research, innovation in medical sciences, and using science for humanitarian causes that are not only limited to disease prevention and therapeutics, but also for resolution of human conflicts and peace building. His work has been widely featured in internationally renowned magazines, scientific blogs, and TV channels.  

The purpose of this web-site is five-folds:

  • An open availability of all of Ali’s papers, lectures, and endeavors to fellow researchers, students, science-enthusiasts and general public.
  • A platform for the medical, scientific, and corporate communities to seek consultancy from Ali, be it for conducting seminars or delivering lectures at congresses, or his input on matters of scientific and humanitarian interest.
  • Rather than hiding ideas or discoveries, Ali is striving to share them openly to ensure transparency of his work, receive constructive feed-back, and give community the hope that someone is aspiring to improve the quality of life of their sick loved ones.
  • Allowing interested folks an opportunity to become a direct part of Ali’s research and humanitarian efforts, either by volunteering to help out or through making donations.
  • For Ali to make his mum proud, because this website and the buzz collected over here might engage her attention more than any scientific journal articles ☺
