New Post Doc to Start in September

mobini-smDr. Sahba Mobini will join the Schmidt Lab at the end of September as a postdoctoral associate. Sahba comes with extensive experience in materials science and regenerative medicine. She has worked with various types of bio-scaffolds, developed from biomaterials such as, Hydroxyapatite, Collagen, PCL, Silk, Decellularized Human Amniotic Membrane, in combination with stem cells. More recently, she has studied the role of bioelectricity in healing and regeneration in vitro and in vivo. To study the underlying molecular mechanisms by which electrical signals affect cells, she has developed an electro-bioreactor to apply exogenous electrical stimulation to the cells in both 2D and 3D environments. Her research interests also include development and optimization of implantable electrical stimulation micro-devices for regenerative medicine applications, with translational and clinical perspectives.

Dr. Mobini’s past experience and degrees include:


2012 Ph.D. in Biomaterial Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology
2007 M.Sci. in  Biomaterial Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology
2004 B.Sci.  in Material Science and Engineering from University of Tabriz
