Research Fellow in mammary stem cell biology

Dr Mohammed A. Mansour's photo

Dr Mohammed Mansour is an MRC Postdoctoral Research Scientist interested in deciphering the molecular mechanisms of stem cell fate determination in mouse mammary gland.

He joined the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton in March 2019. Dr Mansour’s research is tailored to study the dynamics of spindle orientation during cell division and how this dictate the fate decisions in mammary stem cells.

2017-2019: Postdoctoral Newton International Fellow: University of Glasgow, institute of Cancer Sciences, UK.
2015-2017: Lecturer of Biochemistry of Cancer & Cell Signalling: Faculty of Science, University of Tanta, Egypt.

Academic qualifications:

2012-2015: PhD, Cancer Biology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Research interests

I received my PhD in Cancer cell signalling and Biochemistry from Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan in 2015. Following this, I joined the Faculty of Science, University of Tanta, Egypt as a Lecturer of Biochemistry. From 03/2017-02/2019, I was a Royal Society Newton International Fellow at the CRUK Beatson Institute, Glasgow, UK. From 03/2019, I joined Dr Salah Elias' Lab as an MRC research fellow in mammary stem cell biology. I am interested in explaining how apical polarity and spindle orientation complexes play together to direct mammary stem cells during development. Deviation of these mechanisms during normal development can lead to breast cancer. In addition to my primary research project, I have been involved in a number of collaborations nationally and internationally. I have consistently presented my research in national and international conferences. I engage with the public and research colleagues to disseminate cancer awareness and knowledge of developmental science & cancer research. I also regularly involved in supervision and training of junior laboratory members, particularly PhD students.
