I have a broad knowledge in medical genetics, molecular biology, and stem cells biology and differentiation. I have received my medical degree in 1998 from Iran University of Medical Sciences and PhD degree in 2005 from Imperial College London. I have worked on different aspects of genetic polymorphisms, gene manipulation, and stem cells differentiation and manipulation as well as science policy and scientometrics. As a clinician, I am interested in translational research and applicability of the results in clinical settings.

What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:
WebMed Central has a revolutionary idea of peer review process that ensures a more transparent and useful review. Also, it makes rapid publication possible. This eliminates major hurdles, which authors are facing during the process of publication. I believe that this model would rapidly grow in the biomedical publications community.
