Arshad Khan
My featured awards
Associate Professor, Biological Sciences - Border Biomedical Research Center (BBRC)

Dr. Khan studies the neural systems that regulate energy balance, neuroendocrine function and behavioral state in the mammalian brain. He is particularly interested in how neural circuits in the hypothalamus are organized, how they help control motivated behaviors and autonomic function, and how they respond to changes in nutrient status (e.g., hypoglycemia). He also collaborates on neuroinformatics and computer science projects related to the modeling, management, and migration of neuroscientific data about these circuits. As part of his interests in mechanisms underlying nutrient homeostasis, he also maintains an active research interest in the history of neurochemistry and thermodynamics. Finally, he also has a strong research interest in comparative neurobiology and genomics. As part of his scientific duties, he is committed to classroom and laboratory instruction in the life sciences (biology, biochemistry, neuroscience) at the college and university levels.
