Samir EL-Andaloussi's Biography



Samir EL-Andaloussi, Assistant Professor, Karolinska Institutet

Senior Scientist Samir EL Andaloussi received his PhD in 2008 in Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology at Stockholm University. After a postdoctoral stint at Karolinska Institutet working on delivery of RNA-based therapeutics, he moved to University of Oxford to work with extracellular vesicles (EVs). Since 2013 Samir is a Principal Investigator for a growing lab at Karolinska Institutet, now with nearly 20 employees. His lab primarily focuses on developing non-viral drug delivery systems for nucleic acids and proteins with particular focus on production of engineered exosomes for delivery of biotherapeutics to treat genetic diseases. In addition, Samir in one of the Founders of Evox Therapeutics, being the Head of Exosome Protein engineering. Samir has published nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles on drug delivery and is co-inventor on 10+ patent and patent applications.

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have emerged as important mediators of intercellular communication due to their ability to transfer bioactive lipids, proteins and different species of RNA into cells. Thus, EVs hold therapeutic potential in their own right and can additionally be harnessed for the delivery of macromolecular drugs.  This presentation will cover the developments in producing, purifying and characterizing EVs. It will also cover the different strategies to engineer producer cells in order to generate EVs harboring selected RNAs or proteins for treatment of inflammatory diseases, with focus on neuro inflammation.
