Tamer Shoeib obtained his chemistry BSc with honors from York University (Toronto, Canada) in 1997. As a graduate student, he studied metal complexes of amino acids and peptides using mass spectrometry and computational chemistry techniques. In the course of his graduate studies, he led fruitful collaboration with professor William's group at the University of Bath (Bath, UK), which resulted in the development of novel quantum mechanical-molecular mechanical methods to model metal-containing peptides in solution. Shoeib obtained his PhD from York University in 2002 and in 2004, was awarded a prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada post-doctoral fellowship to join the National Research Council of Canada at the Institute for National Measurement Standards.
Shoeib's research interests lie in the areas of analytical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and molecular structure. He has a keen interest in examining the structure, reactivity, and function of metal-containing bio-molecules, the complexes formed by these interactions and their uses in medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry.
