About Maryam Tabrizian

Maryam Tabrizian received her PhD degree from Université Paris VI/École supérieure de physique et de chimie de Paris in 1990. She joined the department of Biomedical Engineering at McGill University in 2000 and is currently an associate professor. She is a Fonds de la recherché en santé du Québec (FRSQ)-national researcher awardee and Director of the Centre for Biorecognition and Biosensors, which she founded in 2001. In 2010 she was elected Guggenheim Fellow in Biomedical Research. Due to the inherent multidisciplinary nature of her research, she has established collaborations at the institutional, national and international levels. Her research focuses on the development of engineered surfaces through physical, chemical and biological modifications, and uses advanced nanofabrication technologies to promote cell- or protein-substrate interactions for biosensing applications. She is internationally recognized for her work on functional and bioactive biointerfaces for applications in drug delivery, tissue engineering and biorecognition systems. She has published more than 130 peer-reviewed papers, several book chapters and patents, over 50 invited talks and more than 220 conference communications in these fields. Her accomplishments in biomaterials research and biological investigation along with high-throughput methodologies for gene and protein expression profiling have shifted her research focus towards designing biointerface for diagnostic applications and developing lab-on-a-chip devices.
