Refining Tailorable Nano-carrier Emulsions for Pharmaceutical Applications

​My research is focused on the characterisation of the tailorable nano-carrier emulsions (TNEs) interface for current and future pharmaceutical applications. These Nanocarriers were developed a few years ago by the Middelberg group where its interface is stabilised by biosurfactants. My work is conducted under the supervision of Frank Sainsbury and its aimed to refine the TNEs for pharmaceutical applications.   

Hossam Tayeb joined The King Abdul Aziz University (KAU), (Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences), in 2004 and graduated with a Bachelor degree in Medical Laboratory Technology in 2008. He spent after that a year internship at The King Abdulaziz University Hospital that was specialised in Haematology and Clinical Microbiology. He was also granted a scholarship from KAU to complete his Master and PhD studies in the Medical Biotechnology field. In 2010, He studied and granted two German language certificates, A2 and B1, in The Mannheim-Heidelberg Goethe Institute. Hossam joined The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2011 at The Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE). Then, He studied his Master of Biotechnology (Advanced) at The School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences (SCMB), UQ and graduated in 2013 with high achievement. He is currently studying his PhD studies at The Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN).
