Saeed Seyfi earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, with a focus in process engineering, from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2005 and his M.S. in Biochemical Engineering, with a focus in Statistical Thermodynamics of biomolecules, from Isfahan University, Isfahan, Iran, in 2009. Saeed received a M.S. in Patent Practice from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Cleveland OH, in 2020.
Funded by National Institute of Health, his research at Ohio University focused on the effect of inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) in apoptosis of ovarian cancer cells. He has also investigated the detection and mitigation of microbially influenced corrosion of sulfate reducing bacteria, a joint project between Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Technology at Ohio University and Total. Saeed has also authored many ISI papers in different fields of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering. In addition to his research and publications, Saeed has also been a lecturer in Chemical Engineering at Rubber Industries Engineering & Research Company in Tehran, Iran, focusing on the transport phenomena (heat, mass, and momentum). Saeed has a diverse technical background in oil and gas refining, paint and resin, purification and separation of biomolecules, bioremediation, microbially influenced corrosion and microbial fuel cells. Saeed is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
