· 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
Oct, 2002-Jul, 2006
I was awarded the PhD degree.
University of Leicester, Department of Cell Physiology and
Pharmacology, Leicester, UK.
The title of my thesis was: Receptor-mediated catecholamine
Release from chromaffin cells: The role of protein kinase C.
· 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.
· 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.
