Mahsa KhayatKhoei, MD, MBA

Dr. Mahsa KhayatKhoei finished medical school in Tehran, Iran and developed an interest in the field of cell therapy and regenerative medicine very early in her education. She started working on several projects, evaluating embryonic stem cells and their effect on apoptosis and angiogenesis. Mahsa decided to continue her research and education in the USA, initially as a research intern at MD Anderson and then research assistant at UTHealth. Working towards her dream of becoming a physician scientist, she finished an MBA degree and began her residency training in the field that she finds most mesmerizing: neurology.
