Sahar Kiani received her B.Sc from the Department of Biology at Azad University in 2001. She continued her education in the Medical University of Mashhad. She joined the laboratory of Professor Boskabady at the Medical University of Mashhad and graduated with an M.Sc in Physiology in 2003. Then, she began her Ph.D at Tarbiat Modarres University and Royan Institute, emphasizing the electrophysiology of human embryonic stem cells during neural differentiation, in the laboratory of Professor Baharvand at Royan Institute in 2006 and graduated in 2010. She currently works as a member of the academic staff at Royan Institute. Her major research interest has been motor neurons, particularly spinal cord injuries.
