Professor of Physiology, with PhD from Trinity College, University of Dublin, Ireland and BSc in Biology from the College of Science University of Mosul. In addition to teaching various physiology courses to undergraduate and postgraduate students, I was also involved in extensive research and postgraduate (PhD and MSc) supervision, establishment and developments of various undergraduate and postgraduate programs and courses. Organized several National, International Conferences and workshops and participated in many International conferences. Worked as Editor – in – Chief and Secretory of three scientific journals.
Cardiovascular Physiology, Smooth Muscle Physiology, Physiology of Ion Channels, Physiological and pharmacological Effects of Medicinal Plants.
Supervision of Postgraduate Students:
Supervise so far more that 55 M. Sc. and Ph. D. Students. Eight of them were Ph. D. students accepted and worked parts of their thesis in International Universities and Centers of Excellence.
Published more than 65 scientific papers in National as well as recognized International Journals.
