Dr. Syed received his Ph.D. in chemistry from The University of Toledo, Ohio followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in structural biology at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California. He then joined a large bio-pharmaceutical company in Thousand Oaks California and worked there as a principal research scientist with expertise in structural biology in the fields of hematology, oncology, and rheumatoid arthritis for almost 15 years. He started his teaching career at California State University of Northridge (CSUN), Northridge, California in the 2007-2008 academic year, where he presently teaches general chemistry and biochemistry courses. In addition to teaching general chemistry and biochemistry courses, he has also created and taught two graduate level biochemistry courses based on his expertise and background in the field of medicinal drug discovery research. Dr. Syed believes that it is important for students to learn the concepts in chemistry to fully appreciate and apply their acquired knowledge in their own science based careers. Dr. Syed’s style of teaching and methods vary based on the type of course being taught. In order to fully benefit from Dr. Syed’s classes, it is very important that students read any suggested material along with posted slide-notes and come prepared to keep up with the material being covered in the class and fully participate in the learning process.
