BRTeam`s Organizational Chart; Continuous Improvement Strategy (Part1: Biological Engineering Group)

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


has based its philosophy from the very beginning on Continuous Improvement Strategy and has made itself strongly committed to achieve that through the course of its evolution into an international research team in the field of renewable energy and biomass utilization.

In light of that, we are pleased to inform the BRTeam members that a number of improvements and changes have been made during the last 6-month period in order to bring BRTeam to a whole new level internationally.

The first improvements achieved has been the considerable development of BRTeam`s Energy Crops Genetic Engineering Group.

The group has been led by Assoc. Professor Masoud Tohidfar since 2010 and has been actively engaged in Microalgae Genetic Engineering for enhanced lipid production. During the Big BRTeam Meeting (Spring- Summer, 2013), two new research group proposals were presented which ultimately led to a number of significant changes in the structure of the group:

1- Microbiology for Biofuel by Assoc. Professor Javad Hamedi; Vice President of the Research, Technology and Microbial Products Center of Tehran University (also Head of BRTeam`s Biodiesel Production Site at Tehran University).



2- Synthetic Biology by Assist. Professor Hamid Memary (Chamran University of Ahvaz; also, Estonian University of Life Sciences).

Having considered the proposals, BRTeam`s Group leaders unanimously approved the establishment of the new groups. However, through the course of further negotiations led by BRTeam`s Research Manager; Assist. Professor Mehrshad Zeinolabedini, with the three group leaders, it was agreed upon to establish a new group entitled “Biological Engineering” with 3 sub-groups i.e. Energy Crops Genetic Engineering, Microbiology for Biofuel, and Synthetic Biology.

So, the ultimate structure of the new group and its subgroups is as follows:


















Biological Engineering Group

Group Leader

Assist. Professor Hamid Memari


Energy Crops Genetic Engineering Subgroup

Subgroup Leader:

Assoc. Professor M. Tohidfar

Principal Research Members:

Assist. Prof. M. Zeiolabedini

Synthetic Biology Subgroup

Subgroup Leader:

Assist. Professor H. Memari

Principal Research Members:

Assist. Professor Pejman Azadi

Assist. Professor Babak Latif

Assist. Professor Ali Sharafi


We congratulate all BRTeam Members in particular the members of the Biological Engineering Group on the establishment of the new group. We also would like to extend our warmest welcome the new BRTeam members.


Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 soon!
