About

I have been working as a faculty member at my home (Tehran-Iran) for more than one decade. After the first graduation at Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences (SBMUS), Tehran-Iran (Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences-DCLS), I continued my studies aboard at the University of Bristol (England) for my PhD degree. Then I returned home and I had been working for Iranian Blood Transfusion Organization (IBTO) as the faculty member of IBTO Research Center simultaneously in charge of education and research at IBTO. Then I moved to SBUMS as the second largest medical university and the second top- ranked medical university in Iran. SBUMS began its mission in 1961 with establishing the School of Medicine. Presently, the university benefits from 12 schools admitting students in a wide and varied range of fields. Also, it benefits from 1300 faculty members, 12 educational hospitals, which educates and trains more than 12500 students at different levels. Since 1988, and following the merger of Ministry of Health with Medical Education, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences is honored to have the responsibility of providing, maintaining and promoting the health of more than 5,250,000 residents of Tehran, the capital of Iran, and the neighboring cities in Eastern and Southern Tehran Province, together with training students of many different health-related majors. Now, I am full professor and the head of laboratory hematology and blood banking discipline at SBUMS. My main subject interest is transfusion practice. In 2012, I promoted to full professor based on my academic and research profiles according to my country and university guidelines and regulations. I am the head of laboratory hematology and blood banking department. This department is responsible to educate some courses of students studying Medical Laboratory Sciences and the most courses of those students studying Laboratory Hematology and Blood Bank at MSC & PhD levels. Since this department has been established in 2013 at SBUMS, it has been approved for education of the students in Laboratory Hematology and Blood Bank at PhD level. My responsibilities include educating and training students in different levels including students at Medical Laboratory Sciences at BA level, students of Laboratory Hematology and Blood Banking at MSc and PhD levels, supervising post-graduate students, conducting approved research proposals , directing my educational department and working as the member of editorial board of some medical journals. It is worth-mentioning that I was elected as International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) Regional Director Eastern Mediterranean for the period 2014-2018. I have been working as ISBT Board of Directors since 2014.
