I was born in Tehran, Iran and moved to the United States in 1996.  I attended High School at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry at Temple University and graduated with a Minor in Business Administration in 2007.  I then attended the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) and graduated with a M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences in 2009. I was President of my class at PCOM.  I resumed my medical studies at Curacao in the Caribbean Islands to obtain my M.D. degree.

I also worked as the Operations Coordinator and Assistant Manager at Teletronics Technology Corp. in Newtown Pennsylvania from 2001 to 2008. During that time, I implemented many new technologies into the company including a new assembly department with a High-Speed SMT assembly line.

My interest is Immunology and Oncology. With the Borguet group, I was doing research with antibody immobilization and detection on Carbon Based surfaces.

After completing his research project with the Borguet group, Roozbeh Ghavami has resumed his medical studies at Curacao in the Caribbean Islands, where he will complete his course work before moving to either Europe or US to do residency rounds. Roozbeh has played an irreplaceable role in the group and we are very happy he is getting to do what he always wanted and wish him great success.
