Global assembling of Academicians, Researchers, Scholars & Industry to disseminate and exchange information at 100+ Allied Academics Conferences
Dr. Atiq Hassan obtained his PhD in Biomedical Sciences from University of Saskatchewan Canada in 2015 and Master's degree in Neurosciences, from the University of Calgary, Canada. He is a biomedical scientist, specialized in neuroscience with 15 years of experience in research and academic environment and currently teaching Neuroscience at Avalon University School of Medicine as an Associate Professor. During his PhD, He explored the potential benefits of Acute Intermittent Hypoxia (AIH) as a novel rehabilitation intervention for facilitating the behavioral recovery of forelimb function following cervical Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) in rats in safe and meaningful ways. I am Biomedical Scientist with specialization in neurosciences and 15 years of experience in research and academia. Some of my research work has already transferred to applications in Humans as subject. During my most recent research, I explored the potential benefit of Acute Intermittent Hypoxia (AIH) as a novel rehabilitation intervention for facilitating the restoration of forelimb function following cervical Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) in rats in safe and meaningful ways. The outcome of the research project has already been applied to human patients with chronic incomplete SCI, where AIH treatment has showed significant improvement in walking abilities of persons with incomplete SCI – through research program led by US Army. I have expertise in a number of lab based techniques, including but not limited to cell culture, electrophysiological, pharmacological and molecular techniques. While also having hands on experience of Handling and training of animals (Rats), animal surgery (spinal cord), Euthanized and perfused animals and collect tissue (brain and spinal cord) for histological analysis, Tissue sectioning by using Microtome, Cryostat sectioning of frozen tissues by using Microm cryostat, Immunofluorescence microscopy and Immunohistochemistry, In vivo animal and isolated brain preparation, Cell culture of neuron and Electrophysiology and Intracellular Microelectrode recording from cultured neuron.
