Mamoon Rashid is currently an Associate Research Scientist in King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC). He holds a PhD degree in Bioinformatics jointly from Institute of Microbial Technology and Jawaharlal Nehru University, India under Dr. GPS Raghava. He obtained a post-doctoral fellowship in King Abdullah University of Science and Technology under Prof. Arnab Pain and Prof. Uli Stingl.
He was one of the team members of Open Source Drug Discovery (OSDD) initiative by Government of India. He developed many machine learning-based prediction models for functional annotation of Mycobacterial and human genome. He has expertise in next-generation sequencing data (Whole genome sequencing, Whole exome sequencing, RNA-Seq, and Chip-Seq etc.) analysis and downstream analysis for biomedical research. He has a solid understanding of different types of genomic assays and their bioinformatics analyses and their implications in biomedical research.
Currently, in KAIMRC he is focusing on cancer genomics specifically breast cancer and blood cancers to identify “cancer antigens or neoantigens” leading to the development pf personalized cancer vaccine or therapy development.

Michael studied biology at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität in Oldenburg, Germany, from 1993-1999. He received his PhD from the Leibniz Universität in Hannover, Germany, in 2002. Since end of 2002 he is working as group leader at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany. In 2011, he finished his professorial dissertation (Habilitation) and was appointed as Privatdozent (PD). In 2014 he was appointed as professor for biotechnology and in 2022 he became head of the Medical Biotechnology department. Michael published more than 170 articles and filed several patents in the field of antibody engineering and phage display. He is co-author of the German text book „Rekombinante Antikörper“ and editor of the book „Phage Display“. His research passion is the development of recombinant antibodies and antibody engineering for diagnostics and therapy with a focus on infectious diseases and toxins as well as the identification of biomarkers of pathogens using ORFeome phage display. He co-founded four biotech companies including YUMAB GmbH and CORAT Therapeutics.
