Mazhar Khan DVM
University of Connecticut

Prof. Dr. Mazhar I. Khan's research involved molecular epidemiology and pathogenesis of influenza virus infection. Currently, in his laboratory in developing and testing nanoparticle based avian influenza (bird flu) and infectious bronchitis virus vaccines. He was involved in the development of innovative bioinformatics tool for viral quasispecies reconstruction using next generation sequencing data for the development of optimized viral vaccines. He has long-term experience in development and application of DNA probe, PCR, multiplex PCR, real-time PCR and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) methods for rapid detection of viral pathogens in clinical samples. Have made significant contributions in the diagnostic field using DNA techniques in identification of several pathogens of avian, animal and human diseases since 1985. Have mentor visiting international scientists form Asia, Europe and South America. He has an extensive knowledge on pathogenicity studies in embryos infected with infectious bronchitis virus, a coronavirus, which causes stunting and embryo deformity before hatching. As a virologist have extensive knowledge and research involved in the development of diagnostic tests and vaccines for the control of avian viral diseases.
