Graduate Studies & Research
Dr. Wared Nour-Eldine
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
School of Medicine
Dr. Wared Nour-Eldine has obtained her Ph.D. degree in Immunology from the University of Paris Descartes- Paris in October 2017. She has a Masters degree in Immunology-Molecular Biology and Signaling, and a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the Lebanese University. During her Ph.D., she worked on the theme of Innate and Adaptive Immunity in Cardiovascular diseases, where she specifically dissected the role of Natural Killer cells in the development/exacerbation of Atherosclerosis. Dr. Nour-Eldine did a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics-American University of Beirut, where she worked on Diabetes (Inflammation, Kallikrein kinin system, heart dysfunction). She joined the Lebanese American University in September 2019 as a postdoctoral research fellow and a part-time instructor. She is currently conducting her research in the school of medicine with the Diabetic Cardiomyopathy Cluster to characterize cAMP pathway in a model of Type II diabetes. She’s also collaborating with multiple clusters to study inflammation, toxicity, apoptosis pathways in pathologies. Her research interests and skills include but not limited to inflammation, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, immunologic reactions, and signaling.
