Professor Mehdi Razzaghi-Abyaneh obtained his Ph.D. in Medical Mycology from Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran. He pursued a 12-month sabbatical on the identification of antifungal compounds from bioactive plants at the Graduate School of Agriculture, Tokyo University, in the Laboratory of Applied Biological Chemistry from 2006 to 2007. He is currently a full professor and eminent research scientist at the Pasteur Institute of Iran, where he is working on mycotoxins and mycotoxigenic fungi as well as antifungal nanomaterial, and biologically active antifungals of plant, fungal, and bacterial origin for more than 23 years. Dr. Razzaghi-Abyaneh has received the book year award of Iran in 2002 for the book "Mycotoxins (in Persian)". He has supervised and advised several Ph.D. and M.Sc. theses. Dr. Razzaghi-Abyaneh has published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, twelve books, and several book chapters. He is the associate editor of Frontiers in Microbiology and a member of editorial board of several national and international journals. His research is focused on the chemical basis of plant–fungal interactions and determining the mode of action of antifungal bioactive compounds of natural origin as small macromolecules at cellular and molecular levels.
