Dr. Kheirolomoom received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran-Iran), and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical/Biochemical Engineering from Kyoto University (Kyoto-Japan) in 1984, 1988, and 1992, respectively. Her Ph.D. work with Dr. Shigeo Katoh was focused on membrane bound enzymes and their reconstitution in lipid bilayer of liposomes. In 1992, she joined CIBA-GEIGY (Japan) as a post-doctoral research fellow. In 1994, as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow, she joined Jülich Research Center in Jülich, Germany, to clarify the kinetics of mitochondrial phosphate carrier. She became a faculty member of the Graduate School of Chemical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, in 1995. In the Ferrara lab, her interest is liposomal drug delivery vehicles, the synthesis and processing of these vehicles in targeted drug delivery and in particular the development of platinum and doxorubicin vehicles with enhanced stability.
