Abidali is an associate lecturer at Macquarie University in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. He completed his PhD in 2010 studying, using proteomics, the effects of single mutations in mouse model on brain development in the autism spectrum disorder, Rett syndrome. He then returned to Macquarie university undertaking a post-doc to study the biology of metastasis in colorectal cancer using proteomics and to determine novel therapeutic targets and develop novel technologies to examine the plasma proteome. He has since pursued that expanding his interests into bioinformatics and particularly ‘missing proteins’.
