Farhad Shiri

I received my Bachelor’s degree from K.N. Toosi University of Technology and Master’s degree from Sharif University of Technology both in Mechanical Engineering. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. My work focuses on two projects: 1. separation of virus like particles; 2. Characterization, purification and sorting of exosomes and oncosomes.
Separation of virus like particles: this research focuses on the separation and characterization of different types of recombinant protein-based virus like particles (VLPs). In addition, the separation of the monomers from aggregates using electric field flow fractionation (ElFFF) and asymmetric flow field flow fractionation (AF4). VLPs play an important role medicine. They are popularly researched as potential drug carriers, and safe vaccines.
Characterization, purification, and sorting of exosomes and oncosomes: this project is concerning about the characterization, isolation, purification, and sorting of exosomes and oncosomes derived from cell culture supernatants and plasma samples. Interests:
