Mohammad E. Khosroshahi
Professor & Director, Nanobiophotonics and Biomedical R&D Center MIS-Electronics Inc
University of Toronto, Canada
Received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics (Application of Lasers in Medicine) from Hull University (UK) in 1993, M.Sc in Analytical Physics from Swansea University (UK) in 1989 and B.Sc in Applied Physics and Electronics from Lancaster University (UK) in 1987. He joined the Biomaterial and Tissue Engineering group of Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) in Tehran where he is a Full Professor. He has been the Director of AUT Laser and Optics Research Center, Associate Dean of Research, Chair of Biomaterial Group, and Editor-in Chief of Iran Journal of Medical Laser. In 2013, he joined University of Toronto, Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering (MIE) as a Visiting Professor working on ‘’Contrast-enhanced photoacoustic imaging of cancer’’. His main research interests are: Biomedical optics, Nanobiophotonics, Nanostructures, Theranostic, Targeted drug delivery, Targeted laser cancer hyperthermia, Multifunctional photoacoustic drug delivery and bioimaging, Nanoferrofluidics, Biological chaos and Cancer thermodynamics. Professor Khosroshahi is a Fellow member of Institute of Nanotechnology, member of Canadian Association of Physics, Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society, American Association of Science &Technology, Optical Society of America and SPIE. He is author of 2 books, co-author of 2 book chapters, and has published over 85 peer reviewed papers in international journals and more than 100 conference papers. In recent times he has been associated with the Center for Advanced Diffusion-Wave and Photoacoustic Technologies (CADIPT) in MIE where he is currently teaching Application of Lasers in Engineering at graduate level. His research activities in the CADIPT encompass the development of an advanced nanoparticle-enhanced photoacoustic radar technology for early breast cancer tomographic imaging. Currently, Professor Khosroshahi is Director of Nanobiophotonics and Biomedical R&D Center at MIS-Electronics, Toronto.
