Samir El Andaloussi
Early Career Research Fellow
I defended my PhD in 2008 at the Department of Neurochemistry, Stockholm University, Sweden. I continued working as a research fellow in the lab of Prof Langel for two years. In 2010, I moved to the Department of Laboratory Medicine and the lab of Prof Edvard Smith at Karolinska Institutet for postdoctoral studies. During 2011 and 2012, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof Matthew Wood´s lab at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford and partially at Karolinska Institutet. Since 2013 I am employed at University of Oxford as a departmental early career research fellow and part-time as assistant professor at Karolinska Institutet. My interest is in understanding the mechanism of antisense oligonucleotide (ON) uptake into cells and how the chemical properties of ONs affect cellular uptake and activity. Also, I am developing peptide- and exosome based delivery vehicles for macromolecular drug delivery.
