My ambition is to engineer functional nanosystems to mimic the structural and systematic complexity of biology
Loai Abdelmohsen's research experience is in the field of polymer synthesis, nanoparticles characterization, copolymer self-assembly and shape transformations, and the design of nanomotors. He is a member of the Bio-organic chemistry research group at Eindhoven University of Technology where the objective is to construct smart compartments with life-like features along two main lines of research: nanomedicine and artificial cells and organelles.
Loai Abdelmohsen studied chemistry at Alexandria University (Egypt) where he received his bachelor degree in 2008. He then undertook a research programme in the field of electrochemistry at Monash University (Australia). In 2013 he started his masters in chemistry at Radboud University, which he completed in 2013. He continued with PhD research at the Bio-Organic Chemistry group at Radboud University where he obtained his PhD in 2017 with his thesis 'Polymeric Assemblies with Controlled Shape and Function' under supervision of professors Daniela Wilson and Jan van Hest. Abdelmohsen currently is assistant professor at the Bio-Organic Chemistry group at Eindhoven University of Technology.
