Dr Sadaf Hameed received her Bachelor’s (2012) and master’s degree (2014) from University of Sargodha. During her Bachelor and master’s degree, she moved to the National Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE) Faisalabad, Pakistan, where she completed her research thesis in the field of nano-biotechnology. Later, she obtained her PhD degree in Natural Sciences, majoring in nano-biotechnology from Peking University, China under the supervision of Professor Zhifei Dai. Her research interests focused on the application of multifunctional nanoparticles for cancer diagnosis and treatment with particular emphasis on the use of near-infrared fluorescent molecular probes for phototherapy and imaging. During her PhD degree she won various awards including Excellent Graduate Award from College of Engineering, 2019-Excellent International Student Award from Ministry of Education China, 2019-Outstanding International Student Award from Peking University China, and Best Research Award 2018 from Peking University. She has published around 20 research articles (IF~135) in reputed international journals, such as ACS Nano, Bioconjugate Chemistry, Nanoscale, Theranostics, Biosensors and Bioelectronic, Chemical Communication. She has also authored 3 book chapters.

Dr Sadaf has joined the Faculty of Life Sciences, UCP as Assistant Professor in September 2021.She is interested to address the modern challenges in biomedical sciences by using the advance tools of nanotechnology and material chemistry.
