Personal profile


Sina received his master’s degree in neuropharmacology from the college of Pharmacy, Yeungnam University in South Korea, where he studied the role of neurotrophic factors in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. During 2014 ‐ 2017, he worked as a research assistant and lab manager in the College of Pharmacy, Yeungnam University.

Currently, he is a PhD candidate in the Centre for Motor Neuron Disease, Faculty of Medicine and Health Science, Macquarie University. In his current research, he has identified novel proteins as new therapeutic targets for MND in both cells and in vivo models (zebrafish, rodents, and C. elegans).
