Dr. Saeed Bahadory Alborz, Parasitology and Diabete, Most Reader’s Article Award

Doctorate at University of Medical Sciences, Iran


Dr. Saeed Bahadory Alborz is a dedicated researcher and expert in the field of medical parasitology. He obtained his Ph.D. in Medical Parasitology from the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran. His doctoral research focused on identifying and synthesizing peptide compositions of Toxocara canis larval stage excretory-secretory proteins, evaluating their cytotoxicity and growth inhibition on cancer cell lines, and studying the internal apoptosis pathway genes in vitro.

Prior to his doctoral studies, Dr. Alborz completed his Master’s degree in Medical Parasitology at Alborz University of Medical Sciences, Iran, where he investigated changes in the expression of key miRNAs in the developmental stages of Toxocara canis parasite and individuals with Toxocariasis. He also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Laboratory Science from Tabriz University, Iran.

Research Interest:

Parasitic diseases: Investigating the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and control measures of parasitic infections, including those caused by protozoa and helminths.

Host-parasite interactions: Exploring the mechanisms of host immune response to parasitic infections, including the role of cytokines, chemokines, and immune cells in parasite clearance or persistence.

Molecular parasitology: Studying the genetic diversity, molecular epidemiology, and drug resistance mechanisms of parasitic pathogens using molecular techniques such as PCR, sequencing, and bioinformatics analysis.

Parasite diagnostics: Developing and optimizing molecular, serological, and immunological diagnostic methods for the detection and identification of parasitic infections, aiming for accurate and rapid diagnosis.

Therapeutics and drug discovery: Investigating novel therapeutic targets, drug candidates, and treatment strategies for parasitic diseases, including the evaluation of drug efficacy, toxicity, and resistance profiles.

Immunoparasitology: Understanding the immunological mechanisms underlying host susceptibility or resistance to parasitic infections, with a focus on identifying biomarkers of infection and immune protection.

Public health implications: Assessing the impact of parasitic diseases on public health, socioeconomic development, and quality of life, and developing strategies for disease prevention, control, and elimination.
