Prof. Mohamed Gaber
Professor of Physics
Building: A 302
  • Professor Gaber graduated from the faculty of science with a B.Sc. in biophysics in 1987 from Cairo University, followed by ‎ M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Molecular biophysics in 1991 and 1995, respectively, from the same school. He was awarded many fellowships such as the Fulbright fellowship. He was also a visiting professor at the department of chemical engineering at the University of Birmingham, UK. In 2016 he became the chairman of the biophysics department at Cairo University. In 2003, he was awarded a prize for distinguished research in basic science.
  • In 2015 Gaber became one of the active members in the Basic Science Committee as well as the Research Academy of Science. He is also an editor and reviewer of many scientific journals in the field of bio-electro-magnetism and molecular modeling.

Fields of Interests
Professor Gaber is interested in the field of membranes and their complexes with macro-molecules. He has principally used lipid vesicles as a drug delivery vehicle and has now studied the mechanism of delivery of many anticancer drugs to specific tumor sites using some heat, microwaves, and laser light as physical factors detailed in his series of peer-reviewed publications.
