DOB: 05/07/1964 Nationality: Iranian Address: Genetics & Molecular Biology Department, School of Medicine, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran Mobile: +98 9133172641, Office Tel.: +98 311 7922415, Home Tel.: +98 311 7812293 E.mail: korbekandi@pharm.mui.ac.ir Education 02/1999- 12/2003 Ph. D. in Biotechnology, titled: “Biotransformations using Peptostreptococcus productus”, Chem. Eng. Dept., UMIST, Manchester The potential of an anaerobic acetogenic bacterium, for reduction of C=C and C=N bonds to produce asymmetric useful products was studied. The growth and enzyme (phenylacrylate reductase) activity was optimised in a chemostat. The substrates and products were analysed using HPLC and GCMS. Between the prochiral substrates containing C=C bonds, niroalkens were reduced almost completely, and amphetamine was produced from 2-nitro-1-phenyl-1-propene. 09/1987- 09/1993 Pharm. D. (Doctor of Pharmacy), School of Pharmacy, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Iran, Modules (All in theory & practice) covered included Biology, Mathematics, Statistics, Biophysics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology, Parasitology, Immunology, Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy, Biotechnology, Pharmaceutics, Biopharmacy, Clinical Pharmacy, Industrial Pharmacy, Quality control and Thesis” Tableting and clinical trial of a lactation promoter plant extract”.
