Working in collaboration with researchers from the Netherlands, Brazil and China, Javad Najafzadeh, faculty member of the Mashhad University of Medical Sciences’ Department of Parasitology and Mycology , identified and registered fungal genes in World Gene Bank (NCBI).
Himself a select figure in Research and Technology Festival of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, stated that the patient can be quickly returned to normal life conditions after the identification of the fungus and disease reservoir as well as adopting appropriate treatment methods.
"Cooperation with universities in other countries began 5 years ago in a way that fungal tests received from the source of infection or patients, are submitted to the international groups on which they perform analysis and molecular research process,” Najafzadeh emphasized.
In 2013, Najafzadeh said, 13 ISI essays have been published in journals with impact factor above 2. "Iranian researchers, in collaboration with other universities in the world, have carried out many studies in the field of rapid detection of molecular techniques, drug susceptibility testing and phylogenetics,” Najafzadeh concluded.
