Dr. Saif Mohammad Ishraq Bari

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Office: Brevard Hall D304


Dr. Saif Mohammad Ishraq Bari is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He is currently working on the design and fabrication of a novel biodegradable micro-drug delivery platform for patients suffering from treatment resistant depression (TRD). Dr. Ishraq Bari completed his Ph.D.(Micro and Nanoscale Systems Engineering) from Louisiana Tech University, USA in 2021. His prior education includes M.Sc. (Molecular Science and Nanotechnology, 2018) from Louisiana Tech University, USA; and B.Sc. (Mechanical Engineering, 2013) from Islamic University of Technology (IUT), Bangladesh. Ishraq Bari’s research interests and expertise include the design and fabrication of lab-on-a-chip biosensors for various biomedical applications, discover novel drug delivery platforms to treat depression, cancer, neurological disorder, and neurodegenerative diseases, and implement microfluidics in cell co-culture applications. For the extra-curricular part, Dr. Ishraq Bari is a sprots-enthusiast. If you are a soccer fan; especially Real Madrid-fan, do not hesitate to say hello!

Mehjabeen Hossain

3rd Year Ph.D. Student

BioMolecular Sciences – Pharmacology


Mehjabeen completed her BSc in “Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology” from University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. After that she flew to Netherlands to complete her masters in “Infection & Immunity” from Erasmus Medical Center. There she worked in checking different combination of immunotherapy targets for colorectal cancer. Currently, she is working in deciphering platelet mediated cancer metastasis. In her leisure time, she can be found watching Netflix or reading self-help books.

Oluwaseyi Shofolawe-Bakare

3rd Year Ph.D. Student

Chemical Engineering


Oluwaseyi completed his M.S. in Material Science and Engineering from Tuskegee University in the Summer of 2019. He worked under his research advisor Dr Shaik Zainuddin to investigate the macro and nanoscale mechanical properties of carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites. Prior to obtaining his master’s degree, Oluwaseyi obtained his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Tuskegee University. Oluwaseyi is working to design polymeric materials that improve drug delivery to tumor-associated macrophages and combat tumor immunosuppression in breast cancers. Aside from his academic interests, Oluwaseyi enjoys watching and playing soccer and basketball.
