My name is Reihaneh Safavi-Sohi, and I am a PostDoctorate at the Precision health program. I obtained my Ph.D. in Chemistry and Nanomedicine from Shahid Beheshti University in Iran, on modifications of nanomaterial’s surface chemistry for overcoming barriers to active targeting. As a visiting researcher I worked on anti-fouling polymeric coatings for nanoparticles in Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany. I further worked in Nanomedicine and focused on development of protein corona sensor-array platform for detection and discrimination of cancers at early stages. 

Prior coming to MSU, I was a post-doctorate scientist in Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology Berlin, Germany. My research during the postdoc period was focused on the development of new approaches for the enrichment and analysis of labile peptide/protein phosphorylation as a post-translational modification using nano-probes. 

My specific research interest is exploring the nano-bio interface as a unique space for overcoming untouched challenges. In my free time, I enjoy painting, traveling and photography.
