Alireza Rezaeizade, PhD
A distinguished and accomplished scientist, Dr. Alireza Rezaeizadeh has built a career as recognized and respected expert in Medical Histology and Molecular Biology, a product of both academic accomplishment and professional efforts as scientist and proven researcher in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology at the City of Hope. Previously, he was a researcher in the Department of Endocrinology at the University of Sydney, Australia. He was renowned lecturer in both practical and theoretical Histology over the course of several years in his native Iran. Keen deductive logic and astute analytical abilities complement advanced levels of scholarship achieved through studies toward the receipt of his Doctor of Philosophy in 2014 from the Institute of Biosciences, University Putra Malaysia. Over the course of PhD study, he focused on diabetic complication, developing a depth of knowledge in animal studies, in tandem with an array of qualitative and quantitative scientific skill sets. This wide range of abilities, as demonstrated by his extensive background in methods, in tandem with bilingual fluency and advanced laboratory expertise has provided an array of tools and competencies to facilitate consistent excellence, no matter the challenge presented.
While much of his professional success is predicted on a demonstrated strength of intellect, a relentless spirit of engaged inquiry and exceptional breadth of field knowledge. His deft technical abilities including quantitative real time PCR, Western blot, zymography ELISA, electron microscopy and more, have been instrumental as well.
Such overall technical expertise complemented by the highest standards in the deft utilization of specific Histology laboratory skills including tissue processing, microtome, tissue sectioning (microtome and cryostat), Histochemistry, immunohistochemistry and dual immunofluorescence staining, as well as the quantitative analysis of images using histology software; ImageJ, and Image-Pro Premier software; are skills that have been honed over the course of nearly two decades of academic and professional experience, Dr. Rezaeizadeh unifies such extensive background through the continuous adoption of multidisciplinary approaches, thus taking steps to ensure salience and validity of findings. This intellectual and experiential background has further enabled the production and international publishing of numerous co-authored journal articles and conference presentations in noted scholarly forums in the United States, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand and Hungary.
With a reputation for professionalism that spans two continents, He has widely published and presented the results of an exemplary and dedicated research agenda. Examination of the correlation between MomordicaCharantia and its impact on induced diabetes assessed through work with neonatal rats, has led to several breakthrough findings. Other interests include the assessment of the connective tissue growth factor/CCN2 in a dietary-induced obesity mode and the effects of ascorbic and fatty acids on wound healing, areas that each and all have significant implications for biomedical advancements.
The recipient of the honor as Researcher of the year at Rafsanjan Medical University in Rafsanjan Iran, his work has also been singled out for distinction from the Deputy Manager of Research, Education, Culture and Student, Medical University of that city. At the cusp of this career it was clear to many that he was embarking on a path of professional excellence when he was cited as Honorary Expert of the University.
Dr. Rezaeizadeh has all the hallmarks of a leader in his field. Beyond his many scientific accomplishments, he is highly personable and effective in interpersonal relations, an excellent manager and team leader with an outstanding work ethic and the requisite flexibility essential for success in research Earlier education included the receipt of a Master of Science (M.S.) in Medical Histology, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Medical Laboratory Sciences, School of Medicine, Iran. While Alireza Rezaeizadeh has led a distinguished career to date, his professional future promises much to come.
