He went on to do an MSc in pharmacology at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, USM, Malaysia followed by a PhD in Advanced Medicine from Macquarie University at the Australian School of Advanced Medicine in 2014. Thereafter, Dr Ameer pursued his post-doctoral training within the area of neuroscience and surgery at the Department of Pediatrics and Pulmonology Division of the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. During his career, Dr Ameer, developed a real passion and motivation for teaching and research within various international universities ranging from Malaysia, Australia and the US. This gained Dr Ameer the ability to engage, collaborate and communicate with academics and students from different backgrounds.

This has been a part of Dr Ameer significant research records of accomplishment within the area of physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience. Particularly, his interests are in investigation of mechanisms of antihypertensive drugs, blood pressure and heart rate and their relation to kidney function, arterial function and stiffness with its connection to overall cardiovascular health. The influence of sympathetic and parasympathetic control of arterial pressure, endothelium-dependent and independent vascular mechanisms, neurocircuitry and the cervical sympathetic chain involvements in salivary gland secretion and modulation.
