(mice model) studies) from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM)
in 2011. After having completed propaedeutic courses in philosophy, Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht did her third master's
in philosophy at UQAM
in 2013. She received her third master's degree (
M.A.) in philosophy from UQAM
in 2016. Taraneh Javanbakht explored the thermal stability of multilayer mirrors when exposed to X-ray synchrotron radiation. Her findings on this topic were published in her master's thesis in physics at UPMC
. She also explored the stability of antisense oligonucleotides against enzymatic degradation in fibroblasts and monocytes as well as cell lysates. Her fonudings on the stabilization of antisense oligonucleotides against multidrug resistance (mdr1) were published in her Ph.D. thesis in chemistry at UPMC
. She also studied the activity of the Cdx transcriptional factors on the promoter of Pax3
gene. Her findings on this topic were published in her master's thesis in molecular biology at UQAM
. She invented a new theory in cognitive sciences in opposition to the prototype theory, the demarcator theory, a new model, the model of tree, a new logic, the tendential logic, the combination of non-classical logics (fuzzy logic, modal logic and tendential logic) on the model of tree, a new rule, the rule of constraint in cognitive sciences and a new philosophical system, Netism, which were published in her master's thesis in philosophy at UQAM
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht has worked as a researcher and lecturer in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Departments of Chemical and Physical Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal
since 2011 and in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Montreal (UdeM)
since 2014. She has worked in surface physics, chemistry (synthesis, functionalization, characterization and analysis), biology (in vitro
study, cytotoxicity, hemocompatibility tests, bacterial biofilms), biomedical engineering, chemical engineering (surface treatment of (nano)biomaterials) and nanotechnology. She has also collaborated with the researchers and clinicians of the universities, hospitals and research institutes such as those of Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital
and Montreal Heart Institute
at Montreal. She has managed and supervised the laboratory projects, coordinated staff operations and taught courses in surface physics, polymer chemistry, biology, biomedical engineering and nanotechnology to Ph.D., M.Sc. and Bac students at Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal
. In addition, she has contributed to the scientific articles and books with the other researchers of the universities of the world and edited the university books. She has also prepared and evaluated grant applications. She has developed analysis methods and prepared laboratory protocols. She has been awarded by FRSQ/GRSTB (research competition grant) during 3 years. She has also been funded by FQRNT, NSERC (Engage) and CFI (project fundings). At Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal
, she explored the surface physical properties, rheological properties, antibiofilm activities of (nano)biomaterials as well as the in vitro
properties of functionalized microelectrode arrays.
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht's articles in physics, chemistry, biology, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and nanotechnology have been published in the scientific journals in France and USA.
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht's philosophical system, called Netism, including her theories in metaphysics, logic, analytical philosophy, ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of language, philosophy of knowledge and esthetics were published in the philosophy journals in Canada and Switzerland in 2008. Her theories in Netism were also published in several numbers of the Journal of New Philosophy by the Tabatabai University
in Iran in 2011 and 2012. She talked on her philosophical system, Netism, containing her theories on metaphysics, analytical philosophy, ethics and political philosophy, in her conferences in the department of philosophy at the University of Quebec in Montreal
in 2013 and 2014 and in her conference for Philopolis program in the department of social sciences at the University of Montreal
She has literary activities. She is a novelist, short story writer, playwright, scenarist, poet, literary critic and translator. She has writen poems, short stories, novels, literary critics, plays and scenarios in seven languages: English, French, Russian, Azari, Arabic, German and her mother tongue, Persian. She is also a translator. Her literary works have been published in various journals, magazines and anthologies around the world.
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht is a painter, sculptor, photographer and composer. She has presented her various paintings in the international exhibitions and has written music in different styles. She makes clay sculptures. She is also a designer and theatre director.
She is a womes's movement and human rights activist. Her articles in these fields have been published in many journals. She founded the World Women Association (WWA) in Canada in 2010 to encourage women around the world to improve their abilities in order to become more successful.
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht has presented several conferences and seminars in sciences, philosophy, arts, literature, women's movement and human rights at the universities of the world.
She is a peer-reviewer. She has peer-reviewed many articles for highly ranked scientific journals such as Nanoscale
, Plos One
, Chemical Communications
, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics
, Journal of Materials Chemistry
. She has also edited several scienific books, which have been published in U.S.A.
She has received several awards and grants for her works in different fields.
Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht has proposed DECONSEM, a new concept that means creating original works in all the fields of knowledge. A DECONSEM is neither a CONference nor a SEMinar. It is a unique style of presenting the creative works in several fields during several days. DONCESM is the deconstruction of the concepts of CONference and SEMinar. She presented the first DECONSEM of the world, including her works in sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, nanotechnology and engineering), philosophy, arts, literature, women's movement and human rights, in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Montreal (UdeM) and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in 2015. She presented the second DECONSEM of the world in the Department of
Chemistry at UdeM, the Department of Informatics at UQAM, the Department of Chemistry at UQAM in 2017 and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the École de Technologie Supérieure in Montreal
(ETS) in 2018. She believes that the ideal situation will occur when the academic researchers who have expertise in different fields will present DECONSEMs during several days. The very ideal situation will occur when DECONSEMs will replace congresses. The polymathy will make the DECONSEMs possible. She believes that Multidisciplinarity and DECONSEMs will make a RENAISSANCE in the lifestyle of human beings and wishes that DECONSEMs will be presented in the future rather than conferences or seminars.
Many reviews on Dr. Taraneh Javanbakht's works have been published in the media. She has been interviewed by radios, televisions, news agencies and journals. Several university researchers, writers and artists have written her biography. These manuscripts on her life-work have been published in many journals around the world.
