Personal profile

Biography

Farideh was offered a Senior Lectureship in Pharmacology at the University of Huddersfield in June 2008. Following her first degree in Chemistry with First Class Honors at the University of Tehran, she then completed an MSc programme in Pharmacology with Distinction at the School of Pharmacy in the University of Bradford. In 1996 she started a PhD research project at the same school in the University of Bradford. Her PhD project was on the neuropharmacological investigation of drugs- and motion-induced emesis and changes in the gastrointestinal motility. Following completion of her PhD studies in 1999, she was employed in various posts at the University of Bradford, including Research Fellow and then Lecturer. During this time she successfully supervised various PhD programmes and also became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy prior to her move to Huddersfield. She holds several patents as a result of her collaboration with industry. She developed the Pharmacology modules for the MPharm course at the University of Huddersfield for years 1, 2 and 3 and her on-going research programmes focus on identifying and investigating the mechanism of actions of novel drugs in cancer Pharmacology. Her ultimate aim is to develop novel drugs for cancer patients.
