Dr. Soraya Rasi Ghaemi is a highly motivated tissue engineer specialising in the field of Regenerative Medicine. She possesses extensive expertise and hands-on experience in andrology, cell therapy, and multidisciplinary biology labs. Her skills include proficiency in high-throughput screening, high-content imaging techniques, and targeted drug delivery systems. Her knowledge and experience extend to the isolation of various types of stem cells, such as Islet cells, Beta cells, buccal mucosa epithelial stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and liver cells. She has successfully isolated these cells from both human samples and small animals like mice and rats, employing advanced culture methods.
Furthermore, she has a deep understanding and practical experience in surface engineering, focusing on functionalising surfaces, nano technology, performing bioconjugations, and designing surface topography suitable for applications in regenerative medicine and other biological contexts.
Currently, her research endeavors include the development of a functionalised chip for sperm selection, a crucial component in ensuring the success of pregnancy through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Her innovative work in this area has earned her the prestigious "Commercial Accelerator Scheme (CAS) grant, awarded in December 2022."
Her academic contributions are reflected in her increasing trajectory of high-quality publications. She has authored 16 peer-reviewed journal articles, which collectively have garnered 704 citations, with an average of 45 citations per article. Her impressive h-index of 12 on Google Scholar underscores the impact of her research. Furthermore, her publication record highlights her active involvement in cross-institutional and international collaborations.
