- Fatima Jamali, holds a BSc in Applied Biology: Genetics and Molecular Biology and MSc in Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology. She was a PhD candidate at the Brain Research Institute, ETH Zurich. Her Stem Cell Biology PhD work at the University of Jordan was on the bone marrow derived MSCs in Multiple Sclerosis patients and their immune-modulatory and neurological differentiation potential.
- She received several trainings in related areas including, GCP and Clinical Trial Quality, Biorisk management, bio-banking from US and EU entities.
- She is a co-founder of the Cell Therapy Center at the University of Jordan, envisioned and directed by Prof. Abdalla Awidi,
- As the Head of Neuroscience Research, she Designed and led the execution of clinical trials to treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injuries and Parkinson’s disease using cellular therapy.
- Her basic research interests include:
- miRNA content of MSCs from different origins
- MSCs Gene editing using RNA silencing
- Telomere-Telomerase Dynamics in MSCs Senescence
- She is the author and co-author of papers published in peer reviewed journals and a co-author of a book chapter by Springer entitled Stem Cell Therapies in Neurological Disorders. Advances in Stem Cell Therapy
