Abdeslem El Idrissi is a professor of Neuroscience and a Deputy Chair of the Biology Department at the College of Staten Island. He is also a Director of the Medical Technology Program and holds an appointment at the Graduate Center of the CUNY in the Neuroscience subprogram. Dr. El idrissi’s research interest focuses on the developmental maturation of the GABAergic system and the developmental disabilities associated with the abnormal development of this system. Thus the research interest has broadened to include physiological function where the inhibitory system plays a critical role. Professor El Idrissi’s research lab has shown that fragile x mouse model has a delayed maturation of the GABAergic system. Additionally, this mouse model shared a significant neurobiology with autism which extended the research interest to this area. Specifically, how environmental toxins play a role in the etiology of autism. Dr. El Idrissi’s lab has also a long standing interest in the study of taurine and its physiological functions on the brain and other organ system.

I am a molecular biologist who specialises in controlling insects that spread deadly or debilitating diseases like malaria, dengue, and zika. After studying in Brazil, I received my training at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine - LSTM and in 2015 was awarded PhD in Tropical Medicine from the University of Liverpool. After graduation, I returned to Brazil to set up and lead a research group at the Universidade Estadual da Paraíba - UEPB. Currently, my group focused on identifying genetic mutations that arise when mosquitoes develop resistance to the insecticides we use to control them. This forms part of a country-wide disease management strategy, and the results we generate are used to monitor populations for developing resistance, which directly feeds back to the ministry of health decision-makers. Recently, I re-join the Department Vector Biology at LSTM as associate researcher / Wellcome Trust fellow where now I lead a project, which addresses the impact of insecticide resistance and adaptation of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and how this contributes to their transmission of arboviral diseases in Brazil.
Research Interest: Evolutionary Genetics of insecticide resistance, Vector-borne diseases and integrative approaches for vector control.

As a microbiologist and academic lecturer, I have been working on microorganisms that are related to human and health issues. Relatively, I have been interested in the development of bacteria resistance against chemotherapeutic agents which is becoming an increasing problem specially the Multi Drugs Resistant Bacteria (MDR), and this had the potential to facilitate more rational thinking about the implementation of Bacteriophages as integrated therapeutically framework. I have been working on the environmental impacts of microorganisms that are related to new industrial issues. Also I have been interested on the microorganisms that inhabit, create, or contaminate food, food-safety and their products which can be used to combat pathogenic microbes. In recent years, much interest has been shown in the use of bacteria as probiotic organisms and their potential for disease prevention in humans and animals.
