Ishmail received his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012, followed by postdoctoral fellowships in Neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine and University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Abdus-Saboor uses an interdisciplinary strategy combining genetics, behavior, electrophysiology, neuronal imaging, and computation, to uncover neural circuit mechanisms for the sensory encoding of touch and pain. Ishmail is a recipient of the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, NIH Mitchell Max Award for Pain Research, Burroughs Wellcome Fund PDEP Fellowship, and Rita Allen Foundation Scholar in Pain Award.
The Abdus-Saboor lab was established in 2018 in the Biology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2021, the lab will move to the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University. | curriculum vitae
