Assistant Professor Haitham Amal

During his postdoc at MIT, Assistant Professor Haitham Amal combined proteomics, molecular, and behavioural neuroscience studies and was the first to show the involvement of nitric oxide in autism. Further, he showed that phospho-signalling in mice treated with cannabinoids led to behavioural deficits. The development of diagnostic models, dissecting cell signalling, and identifying drug targets for brain disorders, have been central to his research. Assistant Professor Amal is supervising one project in the next round.
