Solmaz Karamikamkar is a Ph.D student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia. Solmaz received her B.A.Sc and M.A.Sc from the Amirkabir University (Tehran Polytechnique University) in Biomedical Engineering and Polymer Engineering respectly, and is currently pursuing her Ph.D in Nanoelectronics Lab. Solmaz’s research interest is primarily biomaterials, bio-technology and tissue engineering. In the past she has linked polysaccharides to proteins to better serve the desired property for biomaterials.

Due to the lack of appropriate donor, associated risk of infection and limited availability in autologous transplantation and the immune rejection which pose increased risk of infection, viral disease transmission, tumor development and many associated side effects in allogeneic transplantation and thromboembolisation, associated infection and durability limitation in mechanical replacement devices and so on we need an useful strategy to overcome these limitations.
My goal is to break down these limitations to bring a pleasant life to those who are suffering with finding an useful and applicable solution.
