Dr. Aman has been actively involved in teaching at both postgraduate and undergraduate level throughout his academic and clinical career since 2005. He currently supervises 9 PhD students (3 graduated) and graduated 4 MSc (Research) students.
Dr. Aman currently heads and coordinates several ongoing international regulatory clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of standardized botanical drugs as adjuvant therpay for cancer management.
His main pre-clinical research interest is in the development and testing of novel therapeutic agents derived from natural products for the treatment of cancer, age related neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia, glaucoma and age related macula degeneration. His research at Oxford University led by the eminent Professor of Ocular Neuroscience, Neville N. Osborne in collaboration with CTG Pharma, Italy, was the world’s first to evaluate the hydrogen sulphide releasing (ACS) derivatives in a model of ischaemia induced retinal neuron degeneration. This novel scientific data was recently published in numerous high impact peer reviewed international journals.
In collaboration with several private R&D and pharmaceutical companies, he has helped to develop a robust research platform in the study and development of natural and synthetic compounds which can potentially modulate molecular pathways involved in neurodegeneration, inflammation, angiogenesis and carcinogenesis. To date he has helped secure almost 50 million ringgit of research grants for which he acts as a principal as well as a co-researcher. He has over 30 international publications and has won numerous prestigious academic research and innovation awards.
