Research Interests:

 Cardiovascular Sciences: Increased plasma homocysteine is associated with stroke but its direct effects on the brain during a stroke are unknown. Since Excitatory amino acids are important in inducing brain damage, we examined the effects of homocysteine on the release of various amino acids in the striatum of experimental animals. Homocysteine-induced neurological damage in spontaneously hypertensive stroke prone rats was associated with a hypersecretion of excitatory amino acids. Future goal is to prove the hypothesis if subjects with hyperhomocysteinemia may be at risk for augmented brain damage from an ischemic infarct due to a selective activation of neuronal excitatory amino acids.
Medical Education: The research is directed towards curriculum development, innovative teaching methods and planning an effective assessment system in a new medical school.


Current projects:

Cardiac function in hyperhomocysteinemia: In order to understand how hyperhomocysteinemia can affect hypothalamic injury, autonomic and cardiac dysfunction, interstitial fluid will be collected from brain after homocysteine challenge and the perfusate will be evaluated for catecholamines and amino acids. The data will be correlated with cardiac function (the project has been submitted to KACST).
