Dr. Abdolreza Esmaeilzadeh completed his PhD degree in medical Immunology at Tarbiat Modares University studying on “An Invivo and Invitro Study on the Effects of IL 27 Gene Transfer in a Syngeneic Mouse Breast Cancer Model, A Candidate for the Gene therapy of Breast Cancer” (Winter 2012). Also during in his PhD level, his work was focused on the developing transfection of GL26 murine Glioma cell lines with mIL-27 cDNA for Brain Glioma Immune-Gene therapy and Induction of allogeneic subcutaneous Glioma tumor animal model with GL26 cell line. His MSc. project was focused on Reproduction Immunology. Now, some of his students are working on immunomodulatory effects of mesenchymal stem cells in an experimental model of Behçet's disease and Effect of MIR-... on the induction of differentiation of insulin producing cells from human iPSCs. Dr. Abdolreza Esmaeilzadeh is currently working as an assistant professor and Head of Department at the Medical College of Zanjan University of Medical Sciences (ZUMS) in Zanjan Province, the North West of Iran. He serves as a reviewer (Journal of Genes and Immunity from Nature Publishing Group and Journal of Genetic Syndromes & Gene Therapy; it is official journal of European Biotechnology association), also an editor and editorial board member for some of scientific international (eg; International Journal of Stem cell Research & Therapy) and national journals, and has published a large number of papers in scientific journals, including original articles and reviews. Dr. Abdolreza Esmaeilzadeh is the founder and chair of the Department of Immunology and the director of the Reference Laboratory for HIV/AIDS, Manager and founder of Central Research Laboratory of Advanced Technologies in Medicine, Scientific member of Metabolic Disease Research Center, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Research Center, Director of Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory at Zanjan University of Medical Sciences. He has been honored with numerous awards for his researches, education, teaching and publications. Now, some of his students are in high ranking universities such as Harvard, McGill and Tokyo University to continue their education.
