Dr. Amir Shirazi works as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Rhode Island. Shirazi’s research can be appropriately described as "the application of chemistry to problems in biology" through designing small and/or large molecules and characterizing them by using mass spectroscopy techniques. Specific areas currently under investigation include (1) Development of new drug delivery systems; (2) Development of new prodrugs and multifunctional anticancer agents; (3) Characterization of chemical compounds (large/small) by using different mass spectroscopy techniques; (4) Evaluation of anticancer activity of compounds by cell based assays. Shirazi has a strong background in chemistry and biology.
Research interest includes Synthesis of 3-Arylidene and 3-Arylimine Oxindole Derivatives and Evaluation of Their Src Kinase Inhibitory and Antiproliferative Activities
