Title: Studying nanocarriers in drug delivery applications: using tailorable nanoemulsions as an example to understand the fundamentals of functionalising nanomaterials surfaces


Hossam Tayeb is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences, King Abdul-Aziz University (KAU). He obtained his Bachelor (medical laboratory technology) degree from KAU in Saudi Arabia in 2008. Hossam graduated from the University of Queensland with a master’s degree in advanced biotechnology (High achievement) in 2013. He graduated with a PhD degree from the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, The University of Queensland. The PhD degree involved refining nanocarrier emulsions for pharmaceutical applications. Hossam published articles in RNA BiologySoft Matter and the Journal of Controlled Release regarding targeting, PEGylation and engineering of nanocarrier surfaces. He also investigated the opportunities and challenges of nanoemulsions in medical applications via a review at the Nanomedicine Journal. Hossam is interested in trending and safe bionanotechnologies via surface modifications and engineering in relation to medical applications. His research interests involve synthesizing natural antimicrobials using biocompatible surfactants and essential oils.
