Zeinab Hosseini-Doust, Ph.D.

Principal Investigator

I am a chemical engineer, fascinated by microbiology. For more than 10 years, I have been working on employing the intelligence of biological systems (specifically bacteriophages and bacteria) to tackle the outstanding challenges related to human health. I joined the Chemical Engineering Department at McMaster in July 2016. I am also an associate member at the Micheal DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research, The Farncombe Institute and the School of Biomedical Engineering.
