Dr Mohammad Rabiei is an experienced Virologist within the Gastrointestinal Viral Oncology group at Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research. He obtained an Associate degree in Veterinary Medicine in 1999, followed by a Bachelor's degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences in 2002. In 2005 he started working as a researcher at The Islamic Azad University in Iran. In 2013 he obtained a Master's degree in Medical Microbiology.

His interest in world-class research led to his invitation to join a PhD project at the University of Adelaide, investigating the molecular pathogenesis of (at the time) newly emerged Newcastle disease Virus. He was granted PhD in 2021 with an outstanding "Adelaide Graduate Award".

Mohammad's broad research area is oncogenic viruses. His particular interest includes the role of the Human Papillomavirus in oesophageal and gastric cancer. 

Mohammad currently supervises two PhD students. His field of r leads five other collaborative research projects between the University of New South Wales, the University of Sydney, and the Children's Medical Research Institute.

With more than sixteen years of academic experience (research and teaching) in Australia and Iran, he attracted over 300K AUD. Dr Rabiei has customised a US patent called RADD (Repair Assisted Damage Detection) to assess virus-host interaction. 

As a proactive member of the community, he served as a committee member of several associations within The University of Adelaide, including the international student representative for the SAVS Postgraduate and Honours Committee, the HDR student representative for the Research Infrastructure and Equipment Committee, and an executive committee member of RAPS (the Roseworthy Alumni and Postgraduate student association).

Besides being actively involved with research and teaching, Mohammad spends quality time with his young family. He loves Gardening on a sunny day, reading on a rainy day, hiking on a breezy day, and playing Table Tennis.
