Welcome to our website, this site is intended to give you more information about the courses I teach, research interest, professional and community services, and contact information, and links to sites of interest.

Our research interest is focused around basic mechanisms of oxidative stress, inflammation and lipoproteins modification in atherosclerosis and associated metabolic disorder syndromes.

We are also interested in new clinical and diagnostic biomarkers development and validation studies please visit the research link for more information about my current projects and research team.

The current professional and community services can be seen in the service section, please visit the link to explore my current service activities and see how you can get involved.

My personal WIKI can be accesses by all, please visits this section for the currently active discussion forms. Student’s courses related Wiki will only be accessed by current enrolled student.

Pleases feel free to contact us preferably by email for any course or research interest. For more detailed information on the courses Dr. Garelnabi teach please visit the link for teaching.
