·      Started studying postgraduate courses in 1996 and completed with GPA 5/5.

March, 1999                 I was awarded Master degree in Pharmacology.

                                     The title of my thesis was:

                                     A study on the cardiovascular effects of two novel lidocaine

                        analogues.

PhD degree:

                  Pharmacology, Leicester, UK.

          

                  The title of my thesis was: Receptor-mediated catecholamine  

      Release from chromaffin cells: The role of protein kinase C.

Professional experience:

1996-1999       

·      Teaching assistant (demonstrator), Department of Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

I was engaged in teaching the theoretical part and practical courses in pharmacology in the field of autonomic nervous system and central nervous system.

1999-2006

·      Lecturer, Department of Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

2006 - present

·      Assistant professor, Department of Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Laboratory training and research experience:

·      I was trained in Dr. Willars, G.B. laboratory (Molecular Biology and Cell Signalling), Department of Cell Physiology and Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine and Biological Sciences, University of Leicester, Leicester, UK.

·      I was trained in Dr. Seward, E.P. Laboratory (Electrophysiological studies for monitoring exocytosis events), Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.

I gained experience in a number of pharmacological and biochemical approaches to examine cellular signalling events and exocytosis. In particular I gained experience in: immunoblotting and immunocytochemistry; confocal microscopy; live cell imaging of single-cell signalling events using Ca2+-sensitive dyes and eGFP-tagged proteins; population-based measurements of phosphoinositide signalling; cell culture of established cell lines; preparation and culture of primary cells; handling of cDNA; and determination of catecholamine release from cell populations.

·      From 25 June till 25 August ,2007 I was a part of project team working to investigate the downstream signalling of insulin receptor and C-peptide at University Of Leicester, UK.
