Scholarships / Awards

2007 – 2008: Stipend by the International Max Planck Research School
2005: University of Shiraz award for the first rank in B.Sc. of Biological Sciences


Investigation of the molecular aspects of diseases to develop new therapies. Besides, I am keen to investigate the rules of protein structure-function relationships in order to design and engineer proteins with new functions or desirable features.
