Dr. Fargali earned her Ph.D. in Biological Science from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, Germany. During that period, she worked in the field of Biotechnology on 3-D cultivation and the monitoring of bone tissue scaffolds in the novel prototype bioreactor systems with continuous medium exchange. After earning her Ph.D., Dr. Fargali was a postdoctoral fellow in the Neuroscience Department at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she was responsible for the investigation of the role that the neuronal and endocrine protein VGF plays in the central and peripheral nervous system neurons to regulate glucose, energy balance, depression, and memory. Her research interests include obesity, adipose, brain, chromogranins and secretogranins, cognitive neuroscience, depression, diabetes, growth factors and receptors, memory, neuropeptides, neurotrophins, protein trafficking and sorting, and signal transduction.
