News and Announcements

A Posteriori – Providing Better Health Care Through HL7 Integration

Dr. Safee Ullah’s work has been recognized through the prestigious Shahid Hussain Public Health Research Grant! This is great news because it means that Dr. Safee Ullah and his team will be able to develop a framework to seamlessly integrate healthcare data with all stakeholders of the health care system around the country and in doing so – help save millions of lives and financial resources!

Dr. Safee’s strategy relies on integration of healthcare data through the international system HL7 i.e. Health Level Seven International. This will be achieved through a three-pronged strategy; 1) Evaluation of compatibility of the HIMS (Health Management Information Systems) database, 2) Implementation of data adapter and 3) Demonstration of prototype.

Dr. Safee intends and hopes to work closely with Shalamar Hospital for exchange, storage and retrieval of health care information data to improve and strengthen the healthcare sector of the country. We congratulate and wish him success in this project!


Dr. Shahzad ul Hussan receiving the Shahid Hussain Public Health Research Grant 2020, for “Discovery of New Potential Therapeutics Against Coronavirus by Targeting Viral Cellular Entry and Replication”


Raise the fences – increase defenses. Block infiltration stop proliferation. These are one-point agendas that guide Dr. Shahzad ul Hussan’s latest work to arrest the workings of SARS-CoV-2 virus (more popularly known as ‘the coronavirus’ these days). Dr. Hussan is working to find a molecule that can bind to either of the viral proteins; RdRp, 3CL-protease and helicase, to help disable the sinister virus and its hopefully end its terrible reign.

However, first things first - our sincerest congratulations to Dr. Shahzad ul Hussan for receiving the Shahid Hussain Public Health Research Grant 2020, for “Discovery of New Potential Therapeutics Against Coronavirus by Targeting Viral Cellular Entry and Replication”. In simpler words, Dr. Hussan is looking to find ways to 1) prevent the entry of the SARS-CoV-2 virus into the human body and 2) stop it from multiplying if it gets inside.

Dr. Hussan established the Biochemistry and Structural Biology (BSB) lab at the Department of Biology, SBASSE, which helped his past work in discovery of drugs related to HIV and Hepatitis C. He believes this laboratory, and the grant he has received, shall help him conduct further research to figure out a that one killer molecule, disabling the normal workings of SARS-CoV-2. We wish Dr. Shahzad ul Hussan the very best in his search to find the ‘COVID killer’ molecule.
