I am a Masters student at the University of Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Beazely. I completed my Pharm. D. at Azad University in Tehran, Iran. My research interests include determining the physiological relevance of GPCR-induced growth factor receptor transactivation and its role in neurogenesis and synaptogenesis. We hope to use the results of this research in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric disorders.
