I have interested to do researches in my field of Medical Immunology, molecular oncology and Molecular Immunology.

My teaching philosophy is to be passionate, enthusiastic, and engaging every time that I give a lecture so students are excited to learn more about the topic and become active learners. I don’t try to be my favorite teacher. Instead, I want to help the students to become self-sufficient, as scientists and physicians at the forefront of the field for the next half-century. 

I have more than 6 researches in local and international scientific journals.

Research Interests:

I will be excited to explore different research areas of immunology like -

  • Immunology in understanding disease pathology like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus, oncology.
  • Immune regulation like understanding complexities of signaling cascade in different immunological cells or lymphocytes.
  • Understanding basic immunological concepts which can be translated to bedsides.
  • Role of infection in Cancer.
