Dr. Wared Nour Eldine (PhD)

Postdoctoral Researcher
Neurological Disorders Research Center
Qatar Biomedical Research Institute QBRI

  • Office locationB2-1423-03


Dr. Wared Nour-Eldine obtained her PhD degree in Immunology from the University of Paris Descartes, Paris. She has a master’s degree in Immunology-Molecular Biology and Signaling, and a bachelor’s degree in Biology from the Lebanese University. During her PhD, she worked on the theme of innate and adaptive immunity in cardiovascular diseases, where she specifically dissected the role of natural killer (NK) cells in the development/exacerbation of atherosclerosis. 

During her previous studies, she established collaborations with multiple clusters to tackle questions related to inflammation, toxicity, and apoptosis pathways in different pathologies and supervised several masters and undergraduate students. She also contributed to academics through teaching the “Medical Trends in Immunology” course for honors program students.

Dr. Nour-Eldine is currently conducting her research in the Neurological Disorders Research Center (NDRC) at the Qatar Biomedical Research Institute (QBRI). Her research involves the identification of neuro-immune interactions in patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
