Dr. Al-Ali is primarily interested in drug discovery. He is developing a new platform technology that enables rapid and efficient identification of drug targets that are likely to produce high efficacy in patients. The technology also identifies off-targets that must be avoided due to possible adverse effects (for example, these off-targets would counteract the activity of the drug on the cancer, or would even cause the cancer to proliferate rather than arrest/apoptose). By identifying both effective targets that must be engaged by a drug AND off-targets that must remain un-engaged, highly efficacious drugs can be discovered and developed.
