Zeinab Hosseini-Doust is an assistant professor in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at McMaster University. For the past 10 years, he has been working on bacteriophage biotechnologyon bacteriophage biotechnology. The overarching goal of this research program is to employ the remarkable properties of bacteriophages (or phages), combined with the powerful tools of biotechnology, to design solutions that tackle global challenges in human health and the health of the environment. Her work particularly focused on three applications of bacteriophage biotechnology, namely: (1) alternative antimicrobials, (2) novel biosensors and diagnostic assays, and (3) multifunctional biomaterials and bioactive nanoparticles for biomedical engineering..
