Research area

The increasing prevalence of emerging or persistent disease the devastating effect of it has led to an urgent need for the development of new and more efficient drugs. The introduction of a number of drug-like candidates is needed in order to have a few molecules than could impose on the clinical trials.

The research lab of Dr. Mohammadipanah can be categorized as below sections:

  1. The isolation of unexplored bacteria with the large genome (Myxobacteria, Actinobacteria, Cyanobacteria) from untapped ecosystems using new culturing methods.
  2. The application and expansion of the bioassays platforms for drug-like compounds discovery from new bacterial species and introducing bioactive natural resources in order to be investigated as the  factory of novel pharmaceuticals with potential alleviation/prevention effect in a number of the disease process
  3. Analysis of microbial phenomena, morphology and metabolites using some chemical and mathematical tools
  4. Discovery of new bacterial  genera and species
