Personal profile


Mohamed received his BSc and MSc degrees in Biochemistry from Ain Shams University (Egypt) followed by a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Manchester (UK). Mohamed is an accomplished synthetic biologist with a wealth of transferable skills acquired in both academic and industrial sectors. He has a proven track record of success in developing sustainability strategies for entire process cycles of using microbial cell factories for industrial applications, starting from performing biocatalytic assays, constructing novel enzymatic cascade pathways, and genome engineering of various bioproduction platforms in E. coli and other non-model organism chassis. Furthermore, Mohamed has experience in developing fermentation media and conditions, downstream processing (DSP) of several bioproducts, and continuous support to both pilot- and large-scale production stages for enhancing decision-making processes in the bio-based industrial and commercial phases.
