Welcome to the laboratory of Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology at the University of Birmingham
Sameh El Sayed
Sameh El Sayed received his Master degree in chemistry at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain) in 2012 and Ph.D. at the same university in 2015 with Professor Ramón Martínez-Máñez. His research areas of interest were the synthesis of chromo-fluorogenic sensors and molecular probes for the detection of anions, cations and neutral species. After a postdoctoral period at University of Pavia (Italy), he joined Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red, (CIBER) under Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellowship for 2 years. His research areas of interest was the development of nanomaterials for sensing and smart delivery applications. In 2018 he joined School of Chemistry in University of Birmingham (UK) under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship to work, under Paco’s supervision. My project, AntiobioPICs, aims at the development of Polyion complex (PIC) nano particles capable of delivering small-molecules with antimacrobial activity. This project is funded by the European Commission as part of the MSC actions.
