more detailsFaizan SAHIGARA completed his Master’s degree in Bioinformatics from King’s College London in 2010 during which he gained a thorough knowledge and training in the areas of Chemoinformatics, Protein-Protein interactions and programming languages. Later, he had been carrying out his research within the Marie Curie Initial Training Network – Environmental Chemoinformatics (ECO-ITN) to develop novel strategies in defining the Applicability Domain of QSAR models. In June 2013, as a part of his Marie Curie fellowship, he successfully defended his PhD work at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. In October 2013, Faizan joined CEHTRA to develop High Accuracy QSARs (HA-QSARs) and strict validation of these models with a major focus on clearly defining their applicability domain and implementing statistical approaches to demonstrate the reliability in model predictions. Since October 2015, Faizan has joined KREATiS and is continuing his role as in Silico validation and Statistics Advisor.
