Muhammad Zaman is a Professor in the College of Engineering and the principal investigator of the Laboratory for Molecular & Cellular Dynamics at Boston University and a Faculty Fellow of the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Chicago and was a Herman and Margaret Sokol Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in cancer research at MIT. He has been a recipient of the FEBS outstanding Young Investigator Award and was most recently awarded the Regents Teaching Award, the highest teaching award across the entire University of Texas System of Institutions. Professor Zaman joined BU from UT Austin in fall 2009.

Dr. Zaman’s research focuses on understanding the systems biology of tumor invasion and metastasis. The second main thrust of his research focuses on developing computational and experimental tools to improve the quality of life, education, and the practice of medicine in the developing world. He is working closely with institutions of higher learning in curriculum development and implementation. In addition, he partners with various nonprofits around the globe, in particular with the developing countries, to develop cheap, robust, and easy-to-use solutions to develop improved diagnostics in remote areas.
