Maryam Bazargan


Senior lecturer


I completed a PhD in pharmacology from the University of South Australia, School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences. My PhD focused on the disposition of the anti-diabetic drug rosiglitazone in the feto-maternal unit, in both sheep and human models.

I also hold a Master of Science in Medical (Human) Physiology from Tehran University where I studied the role of the K (ATP) channel under varying conditions in the ischaemic-reperfused Langendorff heart model.

In addition, I have completed two bachelor degrees, one from Tabriz University, Iran  (Bachelor of Science/Midwifery) and one from the University of South Australia (Midwifery).
