Fatima Ameer

Ms. Fatima Ameer has submitted her doctoral dissertation “Factors affecting lipid and lipidomic profiles in malignant and non-malignant hematopoietic cells”. She completed her work at CBL – MMG. She has published multiple research and review articles in well-reputed and peer-reviewed scientific journals. She has also completed her MS also from CBL-MMG. The title of her dissertation was “Metabolic Profiles of Hematological Cancer Patients Revisited: Studying the Irregularities and Interdependencies of Plasma Glucose and Lipid Levels”. She has also served as a visiting faculty member at the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, University of the Punjab (2015 and 2017). In addition to that she served as a teaching assistant at University of the Punjab for the courses on Cell and Tissue Culture Technology, Cancer Genetics, Oncology, and Behavioral Genetics.
