M.A. Kayani COMSATS University Islamabad (Pakistan)
D. Kayani MA received his PhD from University of Wales Swansea (United
Kingdom). He is Professor & Head at Department of Biosciences COMSATS
University Islamabad (Pakistan). He has also served as Chairman of the same
department during 2015 to 2018. Dr Kayani has interests in population genetics and
cancer genetics. He is involved in teaching and research on cancer genetics, at both
under-graduate and graduate level, since 2002. Focus of his research is
understanding the pathogenesis of different cancers prevalent in Pakistani
population. Different cancers are highly prevalent in Pakistan and the age at
diagnosis is decreasing with the passage of time. This is not only increasing the
disease burden in the population but also making the young population vulnerable to
cancer and its debilitating effects. Elucidation of importance of cancer genetics will
not only help in understanding the pathogenesis of this deadly disease but also
eventually in discovering suitable biomarkers and resultantly improved treatment
