IASBS Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences(IASBS)

I am Shiva Akbari-Birgani an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences , Iran. My research primarily centers on investigating the non-apoptotic functions of caspases in cellular differentiation and Epithelial-Mesenchymal transition (EMT). By studying these processes, my goal is to identify novel approaches for cancer treatment. Additionally, I am actively involved in the development of organoid/adaptive organotypic models specifically tailored for breast cancer and glioblastoma research.

Research Interests:

  • Understanding the molecular mechanism determining cell fate (Apoptosis/Differentiation)
  • Development of organoid & organotypic models; Breast cancer and Glioblastoma
