Current Research Activities


Recently, two projects were running in my lab, first one was to study the cytotoxicity of nanoparticles on cancerous and normal cells. The second project studied the green route synthesis of different kinds of nanoparticles and nano-composites, their characterization and their potential applications according to their physical- chemical properties. Since then I have moved totally to this filed, I am now trying to concentrate on medical application since this is my main interest from the beginning, although I have passed by the procedures of synthesis and characterization. Recently, I am supervising a couple of PhD thesis for drug delivery and I am a member of a project to apply core-shell NPS for gene delivery. The last two years, I have started to learn new technique to study the molecular changes In-vivo upon the exposure to NPs, this technique uses FTIR microscopy to measure the biochemical changes in cells and tissues.

Current profession

Current professional activities type: 
last year I earned a collaborative project with CNR in Italy to study the application of NPs as a vaccine adjuvants applying Synchrotron radiation and single cell detection using FTIR microscopy to study the immune system response and modulation.
