Mona Bains came to the University of the Incarnate Word from St. Paul, Minnesota where she taught graduate level pharmacotherapy and research at St. Catherine University.

Mona is a native of San Antonio and received her undergraduate degree from St. Mary’s University and doctorate in Pharmacology from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2007. She then relocated to Denver, CO where she carried out a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke-funded postdoctoral fellowship at The University of Colorado School of Medicine. She continued her interests in the field of neurodegeneration at the Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center at The University of Kentucky investigating the pharmacological profiles of putative neuroprotective compounds in models of traumatic brain injury.

Her work has been published in top journals, including The Journal of Biological Chemistry, Experimental Neurology, and The Journal of Neuroscience. Her diverse research background and interests encompass the areas of neuroscience, pharmacology, molecular and cellular biology and oxidative stress. Although she remains invested in research, her greatest experiences and accomplishments have come from mentoring and training students continuing their education in medical sciences.
