J Jamshidi

Principal investigator and Researcher at NCDRC,

Faculty member at Fasa Universiry of Medical Sciences

 

 

After graduating from Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences with a master’s degree in human genetics, I came to Fasa University of Medical Sciences as a faculty member, where I was lucky enough to be a part of research department and meet the right people, which I consider as a milestone in my carrier. I am also a lecturer in cellular and molecular biology and medical genetics. Now I am a member of Noncommunicable Disease Research Center (NCDRC) which its main objective is managing the Fasa Cohort Study (FCS), a large population based cohort study which was conducted in 2014. The long-term goal of FCS is to reduce the burden of common Noncommunicable human disorders.

As a geneticist I am interested in neurological and psychiatric disorders which have a genetic cause as their etiology, cardiovascular genetics and genetic epidemiology are also of my interest. My dream is to be a part of an expert research team, working on the molecular aspects of human diseases to play my role to move the human knowledge even a small step forward, as Neil Armstrong puts it “Research is creating new knowledge”. 

If you are willing to be our research partner and propose a research project in the filed of genetics and molecular biology,  or have any question about the available databases in FCS, please feel free to contact me.
