Faculty Profile

Dr. Safee Ullah Chaudhary

Associate Professor

Department Of Biology

Safee Ullah Chaudhary received his B.S. in computer systems engineering from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Topi, Pakistan in 2002. He spent the next four years at Ultimus Inc (HQ NC) serving in the software development group. He was the team leader for design and development of Ultimus XML Formula Engine. He then proceeded to South Korea for graduate studies and obtained an M.S. and Ph.D. in 2008 and 2013, respectively. His doctoral research at the Department of Bio. & Brain Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), was focused on computational modelling of multiscale cancer systems biology. He took an agents-based (multi-agent) approach to model tumorigenesis and uncovered the role of cell death in Warburg Effect. This work also led to the development of Electronic Cancer System (ELECANS), which is a next-generation modelling platform for applications in cancer systems biology. In 2014, he joined the Department of Biology at LUMS where he established the Biomedical Informatics Research Laboratory (BIRL) which is now involved in the development of cutting edge techniques and software for applications in computational proteomics, systems biology and mobile health.
