Biography
Bashayer Al-Mubarak, PhD, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Behavioral Genetics Unit part of the Department of Genetics at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. She completed her PhD in neurobiology at the University of Edinburgh which was focused on studying the transcriptional regulation of anti-oxidant defenses in neuronal and glial cells. Soon after obtaining her degree, she did her first postdoctoral fellowship with Dr Alexander Jeans at the department of physiology anatomy and genetics (DPAG) in the University of Oxford where she worked on investigating the role of presynaptic voltage-gated calcium channels in regulating a phenomenon known as “homeostatic synaptic plasticity” (an endogenous regulatory mechanism that maintains neuronal activity with normal levels) in hippocampal neurons. After completing her post at DPAG, she joined the Behavioral Genetics Unit and has been working since then on the genetic basis of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases such as Parkinson’s, Autism and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
