Project: Intervention of Newly Designed Nutraceutical from Cinnamon and Capsicum on Serum Metabolome of Obese and Type 2 Diabetic Patients
Department: Clinical Research Center, Medical University of Bialystok
Supervisor: Michal Ciborowski, PhD, Associate Professor
Co-supervisor: Edyta Adamska-Patruno, PhD
Mr. Ahsan Hameed completed his master degree majoring in “Food Science and Technology” from National Institute of Food Science and Technology, University of Agriculture Faisalabad, Pakistan. After working in quality control/quality assurance and corporate sector of leading Asian food manufacturing company for a short period of time, Mr. Ahsan Hameed joined the School of Agricultural Engineering and Food Science, Shandong University of Technology, P. R China. He got the opportunity to work in two labs, namely The Center of Excellence for Microbial Lipids and Lab for Yeast Molecular Biology and Biotechnology where he actively participated and completed new and ongoing projects.
As of 2019, Mr. Ahsan is working as an Early Stage Researcher (in Marie-Curie Co-funded research project) with Assoc. Professor Dr. Michal Ciborowski at Lab. for Metabolomics, Clinical Research Center, Medical University of Bialystok, Poland. His main research interests are in the thematic areas of using cutting edge “nutri-omics” approaches in personalized nutrition, alternative precision medicines/biomedicines/phytomedicine for individualized therapeutics. Screening, characterization, in-vitro, in-vivo bioactivity analysis and applicative assessment of novel functional foods/nutraceuticals/(marine) microbial/plant based bioactive compounds as well as cell culture and animal modeling, microbial biotechnology, modeling of microbial fermentation, stress metabolism, advanced analytical (bio)chemistry techniques etc.
Mr. Ahsan is currently working with checking the health effects of certain range of novel functional foods/nutraceuticals/herbal formulas and (marine) microbe/plant based screened bioactive compounds on biomarkers of modern civilization diseases (T2DM, obesity, CVD, CKD). Mr. Ahsan has published more than 12 peer-reviewed scientific papers in different highly reputed journals and authored one chapter too. The research team of Lab. of Metabolomics is currently in collaboration with various international universities/labs and still open for further possible collaborations in new and ongoing projects.
