Dr. Sheikh Shreaz completed his master’s degree in 2008. Then he earned his doctorate in Biosciences from Department of Biosciences, Jamia Millia Islamia (Central University), New Delhi, India. After completing his Ph.D. in February 2014, he started his Postdoctoral research at Department of Bioclinical Sciences, Kuwait University, Kuwait. There he was chosen a group leader and he trained a number of students and researchers to explore their research capabilities. After completing his first Postdoc successfully, he got a Consultant Position at Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, Kuwait and there he worked on a project entitled “Bioprospecting of native plants for bioactive compounds.” His research is focused onto exploration and development of new and more efficient antifungals with less toxicity. His work is an additional effort to the development of new chemotherapeutic treatment of infections by using plant-derived principles that are fungicidal, non-toxic and prevent drug resistance. He has more than 35 publications to his credit and is currently the peer reviewer for Food and Chemical Toxicology, Applied Microbiology, European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, Tropical Medicine, Journal of Basic Microbiology, Molecules, Chemical Papers, Dentistry and Oral Biology, Pharmaceutical Biology, Journal of Nanostructure in Chemistry, and Fungal Biology and Biotechnology.
