The Nutrtition and Food Science Department welcomed a new Faculty in Fall 2014. Here we would like to share his research topic to you.

Dr. Shaik Rahaman’s research is dedicated to understanding the fundamentals of inflammatory and wound-healing diseases – specifically atherosclerosis and fibrosis – at the molecular level. His work on this subject has been featured in several prestigious publications including Cell Metabolism and the Journal of Biological Chemistry. Rahaman’s goal is to better understand why people develop diseases like atherosclerosis or fibrosis and help to identify treatments. Most recently, Rahaman worked as an assistant professor at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. He earned a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology/Microbiology from Jadavpur University in India and received his M.S. and B.S. from the University of Calcutta.
