  • Manal Ali Buabeid

  • Associate Professor
  • Ext: 6058

Dr. Manal Buabeid is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences-College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at Ajman University. she graduated from Auburn University-USA where she earned her PhD. in Neuropharmacology from the Department of Drug Discovery and Development. She received the American Federation Pharmaceutical Education (AFPE) Award in 2012. The major focus of her research centers around synaptic mechanisms of learning and memory. Specifically, to elucidate the regulation of glutamate receptor-mediated synaptic transmission in animal models of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and diabetes, and the use of experimental drugs to ameliorate the synaptic dysfunction and associated neurobehavioral deficits in these disease states. Published several research papers in peer-reviewed journals. She has authored several abstracts presented in local, national and international conferences and received several awards for research and academic excellence

Teaching Area
  • Pharmacology II and III for Pharmacy Students, Pharmacology II for dentistry students, Toxicology and chemotherapy for Pharmacy Students.
  • My major area of research can be described as molecular and pharmacology. More specifically my research interest is on understanding the mechanisms regulating excitatory synaptic function the mammalian hippocampus. I study if changes in synaptic function are paralleled by molecular changes in trafficking of synaptic proteins and intracellular signaling molecules and also by behavioral changes, mainly learning and memory. Synaptic physiology is studied by electrophysiological analyses of a set of synapses from a region as well as from a single neuron. In addition I utilize sophisticated single channel analysis, including computer modeling to understand channel kinetics, to identify molecular and cellular processes that shape the excitatory physiology of synapses in the hippocampus.
