My name is Dr. Quratulane Gillani. My Ph.D thesis entitald as “Effect of GABAB receptor antagonist (CGP family) on learning and memory formation in albino mice following neonatal hypoxia ischemia insult” at Bahuddin Zakariya University Multan Pakistan. During my PhD, I visited different countries for training and to represent my work. I spend six months in Vienna, which was sponsored by HEC IRSIP program. Other than that, I also availed IBRO funding for traing in Malaysia and Japan. FENS Funding for Italy. I also won young researcher award to attend the conference in Canada. After completion of my research, I started working as assistant Professor IPFP in Women University Faisalabad. I also worked for 2 years in University of Lahore. Right now, I am working as assistant Professor in The Women University Multan.
