About the article
Mohamed Radzi Noor
After completing an undergraduate degree at the University of Liverpool (UK), Mohamed Noor graduated with a PhD from the University of Limerick (Ireland) in 2012. The thesis encompasses the bioenergetics of thermophilic Thermus thermophilus in comparison to mesophiles, was performed under the tutelage of Dr. Tewfik Soulimane, and was funded by the Irish Research Council. Since then, he joined the same research group as a postdoctoral researcher investigating membrane proteins involved in bioenergetics and ion transport by incorporating X-ray crystallography and time-resolved spectroscopy.
Priv. Doz. Dr Tewfik Soulimane graduated with a PhD from the RWTH-Aachen in 1993 and was awarded with the venia legendi in 2001 from the same university. He was then appointed as a senior scientist at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Villigen, Switzerland, and joined the University of Limerick in 2005 as a senior lecturer and researcher. Dr. Soulimane’ s research is concerned with bioenergetics at extreme temperature as well as investigation of the structure and function of selected secondary transporters and ion channels.
