Dr. Saharuddin bin Mohamad received his Bachelor of Engineering (Bioengineering) in 1998 and Master of Engineering (Bioengineering) in 2000 from the University of Tokushima, Japan. He successfully completed his Doctor of Engineering degree in functional system engineering in 2003 at the same university and took up a post-doctoral position in bioinformatics at Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan until 2004.He was appointed as lecturer in Bioinformatics Program, Faculty of Science, University of Malaya ever since.
His current research interest is structural bioinformatics, with special interest in computer-aided drug design and protein engineering. He is also engaged in research projects related to the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis in genomics,metagenomics, whole exome and trancrciptomics
He is actively involved in teaching and development of courses for Bachelor of Science (Bioinformatics) and Master of Bioinformatics at the University of Malaya. He served as Programme Coordinator for Bachelor of Science (Bioinformatics) Programme from 2013 to 2014 and re-appointed as the coordinator from July 2019 to present. He was appointed as the head of Centre of Research in Systems Biology, Structural, Bioinformatics and Human Digital Imaging (CRYSTAL), University of Malaya since 2017. Recently he was elected as vice president of the Malaysian Society of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (MaSBiC) for 2018-2020 session.
