PhD in Computational Biology

Filed under: PhD in Cancer Research — sandboxarea @ 9:15 pm

On December 1, 2004, Ali successfully defended his dissertation on “Chaos and Complexity in Cancer” and was awarded a Doctorate of Philosophy in Computational Biology. He also holds undergraduate degrees in both Biology and Computer Science.

In a recently published article about Ali, Curtis Jamison– Ali’s dissertation director at George Mason University– said Ali’s innovations in computational biology pointed to a significant breakthrough in cancer research. Ali was hired by the University to design a computer system that coordinated the research of several universities. While he was at George Mason, Ali published or co-published a dozen scientific papers.

Ali loved to discuss ideas, Jamison said, and at no point did he find an Islamic influence in his views, much less a religious extremism.
