Shahid is a final year Ph.D. candidate in the Stem cell lab of the Department of Neuroscience at Central Clinical School, Monash University.
His research work focuses on the development of personalized disease-in-dish models of drug-resistant Focal Cortical Dysplasia to investigate underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. He has generated patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cell lines and has developed neurons and 3D cortical organoids. He is also interested in computer-aided drug designing and in vitro drug screening.
Shahid is currently working on a drug screening project to test novel anti-epileptic compounds in humans using in vitro seizure models.
