Lebanese University (Pharmacy)
University of Illinois at Chicago (PhD)
I have both a Pharmacy degree and a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry. I have worked in medical research for the last 11 years: 5 years in Chicago at UIC where I obtained my PhD, and 6 years at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville where I became an Assistant Professor in Medicine.
I enjoy teaching but unfortunately the nature of my job have prevented me from doing so. I'm hoping Wyzant will give me the opportunity to teach while not interfering with my regular job.
I have strong practical and theoretical knowledge in biochemistry, genetics, pharmacology, pharmaceutical sciences, analytical chemistry, microbiology, and derivatives of all of the above. I think the experience I gained working in research helps me translate hard topics into easy to understand subjects of the practical world. In my opinion, when students "see" the purpose of a theoretical idea it becomes easier to understand, and sometimes a simple analogy of an abstract idea to a common concept could make a world of difference for a student.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I'm a pharmacist and I have a PhD in medicinal chemistry. I have worked in genetic research of Alzheimer's disease. I analyzed GWAS data for more than 10,000 individuals, performed high throughput genetic testing such as SNP genotyping using taqman and mass spectrometry. I have studied genetic knock-out mice. I have made plasmids and transfected them into eukariotic cells.
