Wael Mamdouh is an “Assistant Professor” at the Department of Chemistry, at the American University in Cairo (AUC). Before joining the AUC in 2009, Dr. Mamdouh was working as “assistant professor” at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University in Denmark since 2005, where he was in charge of one of the highly equipped state-of-the-art Nanoscience and Nanotechnology laboratories, the scanning probe microscope (STM and AFM)) activities under ambient conditions. Dr. Mamdouh was also appointed as “guest professor” since 2008 at two prestigious Universities in China; Tianjin University (TU), Tianjin, and Henan University, Kaifeng. Dr. Mamdouh has received his “Master and Ph.D. degrees in science: Chemistry” from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K. U. Leuven) in Belgium in 2002 and 2005 respectively, and he received his Bachelor degree in Science: Chemistry-Major from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 1997. Dr. Mamdouh’s intensive research experience is focused on designing novel nanomaterials, investigating the chemical and physical properties of nanomaterials, building supramolecular network, and biomolecular systems, molecular simulations and computer modelling. Dr. Mamdouh used a wide variety of nanomaterials ranging from DNA/RNA nucleobase molecules, modified nucleobases, peptide nucleic acids, locked nucleic acids, amino acids, carbon nanotubes, enzymes, proteins, chromosomes, and DNA origami. He has published many articles in “Nature”, “Nature Nanotechnology”, “ACS NANO”, “Journal of the American Chemical Society”, and others, and his work has been presented at many different universities and specialized conferences where he has been invited to lecture at many national, international conferences, workshops and universities in Europe, China, USA and Egypt.
