Research Interest :

My current research interests are at the intersection of pharmacology and neuroscience, and focus on understanding how chemical molecules interact with biological systems in the molecular level. Also, I am finding in myself a growing passion for understanding and exploring neurophysiological pathways underlying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer. My second priority for research is in the field of pharmacovigilance, medication safety, and public health. I have also a great deal of cooperation with Iran FDA and work on Public Health Affairs. The third area of interest is metal toxicity implicated in a number of neurodegenerative diseases. They include arsenic, zinc, vanadium, manganese, tellurium and etc. The neurotoxicity with the metals has been a major area of concern over the world.
