About Firas H Kobaissy
Firas H. Kobaissy received a Ph.D. in molecular Neuroscience from the University of Florida (Gainesville) under the direction of Dr. Kevin K. Wang and Dr. Mark S. Gold. Most of his research focused on brain injury due to mechanical insult or due to drug abuse neurotoxicity using rat model. Dr. Kobaissy utilizes the state of the art proteomics tools to investigate cell death mechanisms involved in different brain insults.
In his Ph.D., Dr. Kobaissy utilized the controlled cortical impact (CCI) rat model to evaluate protein dynamics after acute brain injury. In his Post doctoral training, he translated his work to study the proteomics changes involved in drug abuse particularly in methamphetamine and MDMA. Dr. Kobeissy is the author of several articles, reviews, and book chapters along with three international patents. He is the Associate Scientific Director for the Psychoproteomics and Nanotechnology Research Center. In 2008, Dr. Kobaissy joined the Department of Psychiatry and the Division on Addiction Medicine as Research Assistant Professor.
