Dr. Azadi received her B.Sc. in Chemistry in 1987 from the University of North London and her Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1991 from Imperial College of Science and Technology, University of London, studying structural characterization of carbohydrates and glycoproteins by mass spectrometer. From 1990 to 1994 she was the senior scientist and study director at M-Scan limited, an Analytical Mass Spectrometry Consultancy.
Dr. Azadi joined the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) in 1994 as a postdoctoral fellow. Since 2001 she was the Technical Director, of Service and Training. In 2021 she was promoted to Associate Director of the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center for Analytical Service, Training, and Dissemination, and is currently principal investigator for the NIH “National Resource Center in Glycoscience” and the Department of Energy “Center for Plant and Microbial Complex Carbohydrates”. She is also co-investigator and director of analytical characterization for GlycoMIP, an NSF-funded Material Innovation Platform. Dr. Azadi’s group has collaborated with over 2000 investigators from both non-profit institutions and industry on characterizations of glycans and has helped train over 6000 scientists as part CCRC’s annual hands-on training courses.
