  • Research Interests:

    The major focus of the laboratory is on the development of novel gene delivery systems to achieve an appropriate vector for gene therapy.
    Current Projects:

    ] Developing polymer-based (especially PEI-based) gene delivery systems.

    The objective of these studies is to achieve novel non-viral vectors with an improved ability of getting gene inside cells.

    ] Developing peptide-based non-viral gene delivery systems.

    The emphasis of these studies is to design vectors, which cannot serve many functions that other types of non-viral vectors can not perform alone.

    ] Liposome-based delivery of gene using different approaches

    ] Preparation and evaluation of nano-sized lipoplexies as a non-viral in gene therapy: effect of bilayer fluidity of cationic liposome’s on transfection efficiency.

    ] Preparation and evaluation of glactosylated lipoplexes as non-viral vector: effect of cholesterol derivatives on transfection efficiency.

    Future Projects:

    ] Application of recombinant fusion proteins for gene delivery.

    Because of having precise composition, sequence and length, these types of vectors can be good options for cancer gene therapy.NanomedicineNanomedicineNanomedicine

The school started out with 61 students, one associate professor and seven tutors. In 1956, when the school of Arts opened, the two schools merged to form the University of Mashhad. In 1989, the faculties offering Medical Sciences' degrees across the country separated from the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education. New emerging Medical Universities have gone under management of Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education. Thus the original University of Mashhad was divided into two independent universities: "Ferdowsi University of Mashhad" and "Mashhad University of Medical Sciences'. Mashhad University of Medical Sciences operates at present with 8 faculties, 32 hospitals, 179 rural and 147 urban health centers. It covers an enormous area stretching from the north east to the central parts of the country, which makes it the largest university of Medical Sciences providing health care and treatment services. With 597 teaching staff, 1645 MDs with different specialties, 138 dentists, 123 pharmacists and 25, 402 employees, the university provides health care and medical services to the area's large population as well as to over 25 million tourists a year.
