Research Area of Interest


 

My research interests focus in particular on metabolic syndrome including prediabetes, diabetes, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease and obesity. In addition to this I’m interested in topics of biological variations and biochemical reference intervals. I did publish many peer group articles including original, review and letters. I am now the principal investigator for the IFCC multicenter study to establish reference intervals for the Saudi population. Funds for this project were paid by the IFCC organization, reference intervals committee. Effectively, I can manage projects and research laboratories, preparing manuscripts, writing reports, proposals and research grants. I have been collaborating with different overseas collaborators effectively with good communication skills. I have presented works and lectures for students and at general meetings, symposiums and conferences.   My ambitious is endless and passing the exam at the end of the fellowship program is one of my future priorities.
