Alina Crenguţa Nicolae

Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy

ALINA CRENGUȚA NICOLAE is currently an associate professor at the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Medicine and Pharmacy 'Carol Davila', Bucharest, Romania. She is managing editor of FARMACIA journal, a major scientific publication gathering important research papers from the pharmaceutical field. In 2013, she completed her doctoral thesis 'Biochemical mechanisms involved in multidrug resistance', and the interest in investigating multidrug resistance has remained a central pillar of her activity. She is passionate about the field of neuropharmacology. Her research projects (conducted so far) focus on the individual neuro-biochemical profile, correlated with age, gender, race, metabolic and genetic profiles, as well as the establishment of predictive biomarkers that trigger the response to pharmacotherapy and multidrug resistance mechanisms modulation, at the level of blood-brain barrier. Mrs. Nicolae's scientific research is supported by many articles published in ISI journals, books and book chapters, among which 'P-glycoprotein and the development of multidrug resistance' represents a complete book revealing all the biochemical mechanisms underlying this vast and intricate process of multidrug resistence that occurs in living cells.
