Dr. Qamar specializes in Analytical Chemistry and his research focuses on wax printing and inkjet printing of functional materials on various flexible substrates for the development of low cost diagnostic devices.  While fabricating low cost diagnostic devices, he hopes to discover alternative ways to develop economical flexible sensor prototypes and make them available all around the world, especially in extremely resource deprived areas.  “Wonders happen in science because of good teamwork and collaboration.  We always learn from each other and contribute together.” (Dr. Ahmad Qamar)  He plans to make significant contributions to the development of non-invasive diagnostic methods.  His research may lead to pre-clinical health diagnostics at home that can reduce visits to the hospital.
