DATE OF BIRTH:    21-03-1961


1- Biography:

In 1984 I was graduated from Iran University of Medical Sciences in Radiology Technology. The Year  after, I left to London for the higher educations. I received my MSc in Medical physics from University of Surrey in 1986, and PhD in the same subject but in the field of Medical Imaging from the University College of London (UCL) in 1993.

After the graduation, in return from abroad, I started my collaboration with Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS), involved in establishing the Research Center for Sciences and Technology in Medicine (RCSTIM) under administration of Ministry of Health, Treatment, and Education (MOH) in Iran. I spent few years as Directing manager and the deputy director of the research center, also worked as the director of the Informatics council in the University. I served as the advisor in Medical equipments in MOH from 1997 till 2001, when I was working as the Managing Director of Medical Product Distribution Company belongs to MOH. I was elected as the president of Iranian Association of Medical Physicists (IAMP) from 1995 to 2005. Then, I have been appointed as the head of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering Department in TUMS, where I am lecturing and guiding a number of MSc and PhD students.

Nowadays, I am mainly involved in managing scientific research projects and leading two research groups, one in “Neuroimaging and analysis” (fMRI/DTI/MRS/QMRI), and the other in “Biomarker Imaging” (Biomarker development and Tumor specific imaging). Recently I developed new imaging strategy with the aim of Cell Imaging (ie Stem Cell tracking for cell therapy monitoring). All these activities are run under two research centers; “Research Center for Molecular and Cellular imaging” (RCMCI), and “Advanced Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology Research Center”, both located in Emam Khomeini Hospital in TUMS.
