Morteza Mahmoudi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology. His research focuses on developing new nano-based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease, including cancer.

Dr. Mahmoudi received his Ph.D. in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from Sharif University of Technology. He completed additional training in cardiovascular medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. Prior to joining MSU, Dr. Mahmoudi was an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School.


Dr. Mahmoudi’s specific research interest is in nanomedicine and regenerative medicine for the development of new nano-based platform for the prevention/treatment of life-threatening conditions such as cardiomyopathy, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, his team aims to achieve the required in-depth mechanistic understanding of the variation of sex-specific cellular and molecular differences and their interactions with nanoparticles to provide a unique opportunity for advancing nanomedicine diagnostic/therapy in both sexes.
