Regarding my undergraduate study, I graduated from veterinary medicine  college for a period of 1997-2002. A master degree was completed during 2004-2006 at the same college in a department of physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology, University of Mosul, Mosul. The project involved assessing toxic effects of an anthelmintic drug oxfendazole on pregnant female rats prenatally and postnatally. After achieving master degree, I obtained an employment as assistant lecturer at the college of veterinary medicine since 2006, University of Dohuk, Dohuk. In 2012, I started studying a PhD in tissue engineering and drug delivery department at school of pharmacy, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, Uk. The study included probing function of organic cation transporters (OCTs) in respiratory system using alveolar cell line, A549 as a main cell line and bronchial cell line, Calu-3 as a control cell line. The expression profile of all members of OCTs was conducted (OCT1-3, OCTN1-2) using polymerase chain reaction PCR. OCT1 and OCTN2 were quantified applying quantitative polymerase chain reaction QPCR. In addition, they were quantified at posttranscriptional level using In Cell Western ICW technique.
