Dr. Mohammad Rabiei is an experienced Virologist, contributing significantly to the field within the Gastrointestinal Viral Oncology group at the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research. His academic journey began with an Associate degree in Veterinary Medicine in 1999, followed by a bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory sciences in 2002. Commencing his research career in 2005 at IAU in Iran, Mohammad's dedication led him to earn a master’s degree in medical microbiology in 2013.

 

Driven by a passion for cutting-edge research, Mohammad was invited to join a PhD project at the University of Adelaide, where he delved into the molecular pathogenesis of the newly emerged Newcastle disease Virus. His exceptional contributions culminated in the conferral of a PhD in 2021, accompanied by the prestigious "Adelaide Graduate Award."

 

Specializing in oncogenic viruses, Mohammad's research focus centres on the role of Human Papillomavirus in oesophageal and gastric cancer. Currently overseeing two PhD students and leading five collaborative research projects spanning institutions such as the University of New South Wales, the University of Sydney, the Children's Medical Research Institute, and The Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Mohammad is at the forefront of innovative scientific endeavours.

 

With over sixteen years of academic expertise in both Australia and Iran, Mohammad has secured substantial research funding, exceeding 300K AUD. Notably, he has customized a US patent called RADD (Repair Assisted Damage Detection) to evaluate virus-host interactions.

 

Beyond his academic pursuits, Mohammad is actively engaged in community service. He holds the position of Marketing and Community Engagement Officer on the Executive Committee of the Ingham Institute Postdoc Association. His previous roles include committee memberships at The University of Adelaide, serving as the international student representative for the SAVS Postgraduate and Honours Committee, HDR student representative for the Research Infrastructure and Equipment Committee, and an executive committee member of RAPS (Roseworthy Alumni and Postgraduate student association).

 

Balancing his professional commitments, Mohammad cherishes quality time with his young family. His diverse interests include gardening on sunny days, reading during rainy weather, hiking on breezy days, and enjoying a game of table tennis.
