Dr. Waleed A. Zalloum, B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D, obtained his B.Sc. degree in Pharmacy in 2002 (Jordan) followed by a M.Sc degree in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2006 from the university of Jordan. Following research experience as a Research Associate at the University of Jordan (2006-2007), he received an overseas research scholarship (ORS) to join the University of Manchester as a Ph.D student under the supervision of Dr. Elena Bichenkova. He was awarded his Ph.D degree in 2011 where he studied the structural aspects of chemical ribonucleases using high-field NMR and molecular modelling techniques. Now he is working as Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the American University of Madaba/Jordan.
Use of the high field NMR techniques combined with molecular dynamics to understand the mechanism of action of one type of artificial ribonucleases, which could be targeted to treat different diseases; Combining all of these techniques whenever it is possible to enrich the field of drug discovery and discover new drugs.
