    Mostafa A. El-Sayed was born in Egypt where he received his BSc. He received his Ph.D. at Florida State University. After doing postdoctoral work at Yale, Harvard and CalTech, he joined the faculty at UCLA. In 1994, he moved to Georgia Tech and became the Julius Brown Chair, Regent Professor and Director of the Laser Dynamic Lab.

    El-Sayed and his present and past group members (over 70 Ph.D. students and over 40 Postdoctoral Fellows) have contributed to many areas of physical and material science research. They have been involved in the development of new techniques such as magneto photo selection, picosecond Raman spectroscopy and phosphorescence microwave double resonance spectroscopy. Since he moved to Georgia Tech, El-Sayed and his group became active in the field of Nano-Science and Nano-Technology and studied study the physical, chemical and photo thermal processes in metallic and semiconductor nano structures of different shapes and compositions. The shape dependent applications of the metallic nanoparticles in nano catalysis, nano motors as well as nano medicine (in Cancer diagnoses and photo-thermal therapy) have been demonstrated.

    El-Sayed has published over 550 peer-reviewed papers, gave over 45 special named lectures and over 250 invited talks at National and International meetings. He has served on numerous international and national committees such as the Advisory Boards of NSF and Basic Energy Sciences of DOE and the Board of Chemical Sciences of the National Research Council. Prof. El-Sayed has served as the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry (1980-2004) and as the U.S. Editor of the International Reviews in Physical Chemistry.

    El-Sayed is an elected member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, and elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the AAAS and the American Physical Society. He has received the 1990 King Faisal International Prize in Science and an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Hebrew University. He has received a number of national awards such as the Fresenius, the Tolman, the Richard's medal, as well as other numerous local ACS section awards. In 2002, he received the ACS-APS Langmuir National Award in Chemical Physics. In 2007, he was named the Distinguished Professor of the year at Georgia Tech and was offered the Miller Visiting Professorship at the University of California at Berkeley. He is the recipient of the 2007 National Medal of Science Award; and the 2009 Ahmed Zewail Prize in Molecular Sciences.
