Gheyath K. NasrallahPhD

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Sciences
Department of Health Sciences -Biomedical Sciences
Qatar University
Address:Doha, State of Qatar

Dr. Nasrallah attended Dalhousie University/Halifax, Canada to pursue a PhD in Microbiology & Immunology in Dr. Rafael Garduno’s lab. His PhD project elucidated the roles of the two bacterial genes, htpB and potD, in the pathogenesis of the fresh water pathogen Legionella pneumophila. Dr. Nasrallah received his postdoctoral fellowship training in Dr. Jason Berman’s zebrafish lab at the IWK Health Center/Canada. His postdoctoral work was part of a Genome Canada funded project that aimed to identify novel genes and therapeutic interventions for a number of orphan diseases. After he finished his fellowship, Dr. Nasrallah joined departmetn of Helath Sciences/ Biomedical Sciences Program at Qatar university in 2012 as an Assistant professor. Dr. Nasrallah’s research track record spans different disciplines including molecular bacterial pathogenesis, virology, immunology, and cell biology. Dr. Nasrallah has received several awards and recognitions, presented his research at several national and international conferences, and published several papers in his field.

Research Interests

Infectious disease studies
1.Molecular and Sero- epidemiology of blood-borne viruses among healthy blood donors in Qatar. This includes GBV-C/HGV, TTV, HEV, CMV and EBV. In this project, we utilize different detection methods including PCR, qRT-PCR, and ELISA for detection of these viruses. Further, we are also interested in phylogeny of these detected viruses in order to have a better understanding of the most predominant genotypes of the above viruses in Qatar and in the gulf region.
2.Investigation of Legionella pneumophila in Qatar cooling systems. In nature, Legionella can be present in different forms such as the mature intracellular (single and motile bacteria), viable but not culturable(VBNC) form, filamentous form (biofilm), or might be backed in a membrane bound vesicle (contains more than 100 bacteria). This can lead to a variation in the Legionella bacterial count when different detection methods are used. The aim of this project is (i) to investigate the presence (count) of L. pneumophila in a number of cooling towers in Qatar, then (ii) to evaluate the efficiency the common available detection methods including qRTPCR, RNA hybridization (hybriscan), immunofluorescence, and culture in term of sensitivity and specificity, finally (iii) we would like to investigate if all of the aforementioned Legionellaforms can be found in cooling towers.

functional genomic studies:
In collaboration with the several in Qatar we are aiming to establish a zebrafish facility in the near future. We will use this powerful genetic toolto discover the function of novel genes that are responsible for a number of inherited diseases that are predominant in Qatar such as the Homocystinuria.

Nalini Kumar PhD

Department of Immunobiology
Yale University
Address:New Haven

My interest in Immunology gained fresh impetus during my master studies in India. I was fascinated to extend my knowledge in the field of translational immunology with a special interest in understanding the balance of Immune system between cancer and autoimmunity. My doctoral studies at karolinska Institute, Sweden, gave me an opportunity to work on biology of interleukin-7 and IL-7 receptor isoforms and their implications in cancer and autoimmunity.My Research Scholar work at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School helped me to understand the cross talk between the infection and infection induced autoimmunity, also dysregulation of Treg function in Lyme disease settings. My postdoctoral work at Yale University introduced me to a new era of studying human diseases in a humanized mouse model. My research interests include a) role of inflammation, gut flora and their cross talk between infection, cancer and autoimmunity b) understanding the mechanisms of action of biologics and nanotheriapeutics in humanized mice and c) translating this bench knowledge to bed side.

Research Interests

Immunology, type 1 diabetes, infection, cancer, autoimmunity, humanized mice, inflammatory bowel disease, biologics, graft versus host disease and nanotherapeutics.

Research Interests
  1. Research Interests:
    ? During the doctoral study, I tried to find out causative organism of otomycosis. A detailed physiological
    study was performed to find out enzymatic and pathogenic capabilities of these microorganisms,
    doctoral work was focused on evaluation of various organic volatiles against microorganisms. During
    postdoctoral study, an effort was made to evaluate various medicinal plants and plant products against
    microorganisms causing otomycosis. Doctoral & postdoctoral work is well cited in various International
    & National journals of repute
    ? My present research interests ranges from microbial diversity to medical and soil microbiology,
    antimicrobial chemotherapy, Medical and Fungal Biotechnology and computational biology. Present
    research is mainly focused on development of antimicrobial agents against multidrug resistant fungi and
    bacteria. I am trying to solve enigma of microbial diversity of soil and in normal microflora of human
    being. Understanding pathogenecity and proper diagnosis of any disease is cardinal to find out effective
    treatment for any disease. Inability to solve this enigma can jeopardize the life of patients, present
    research is focused on identification of cancer antigen, pathogenic bacteria and fungi from patients and
    their antibacterial sensitivity is also noticeable. This contribution in identification of medically important
    fungi is well cited, by his first reporting of subcutaneous pheohyphomycosis on face caused by
    Cladophialophora bantiana in India.
    ? Development of new computational programs has increased the speed of biological research. Presently,
    my attempt is to use bioinformatics programs as well as database to find out relationship among
    microorganism through genome mining. Presently I am trying to find out enzymatic capability of
    microorganisms present on heritage sites, so that any effective counteracting substance can be developed
    to prevent deterioration of these culturally important sites. On the contrary to enzymatic capability of
    these environmental microorganisms. I am also trying to find out production of L- asparagines by these
    microorganisms because this enzyme is very effective in treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
    ? Besides that, I am working on diversity of microorganism found in diabetic, Gall bladder and dental
    caries patients because understanding of this diversity can help in finding out potential roles of these
    microorganisms in disease etiology. I am currently using Bioinformatics resource for oral pathogens
    (BROP) and Oral pathogen micro-array database (OPMD) to detect diversity of oral pathogens, as well
    as I am using Genome-wide ORF Alignment (GOAL) to study about the role of bacteria in secondary
    infections in diabetic patients.
