Sari Rasheed


Sari Rasheed earned his master’s degree in Microbiology and Immunology from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 2016. He investigated a research project entitled “The Effect of Micafungin and Anti-bacterial Agents on Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilm Formation in BALB/c Mice” which was presented both during the ASM Microbe 2017 in New Orleans-USA , and in 19th Annual Congress of the Lebanese Society for Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (LSIDCM) in Beirut.

In 2017, Sari joined the HIPS-department of Microbial Natural Products as a PhD student. His main research focuses on target identification and mode-of-action studies with novel microbial natural products. Currently, Sari is working on initiating an in vivo zebrafish model to study and characterize early-stage compounds discovered at HIPS with a focus on the tuberculosis model Mycobacterium marinum.
