Introduction

Professor Ibrahim Banat; PhD, Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, UK.

Professor Banat was born and educated in Kuwait. In June 1978 he completed his Bachelors in Microbiology at Kuwait University and then his PhD from Essex University, England in 1982.
He then joined the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research in 1983 as an Assistant then Associate Research Scientist becoming a Research Scientist in 1989. He joined University the UAE in Al Ain, Abudhabi as an Associate Professor of Microbiology in 1991.
He won the Shoman Prize for 'Young Scientist of the Arab World', in Biological Sciences in 1993.
He rejoined the University of Ulster UK in 1997 and currently holds a Professorship “Chair in Microbial Biotechnology” since 2005 at the School of Biomedical Sciences and the Center of Molecular Biosciences.
He has been and remains active in academia, scientific research, consultancies and international research collaborations. He has 325 publications in international refereed journals, conferences and symposia, an h-index of 68 and >23,000 citations as listed in Google Scholar see; http://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=YwfP5SYAAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao
Professor Banat is an internationally respected expert in the field of Microbial biosurfactants, bioactives, biofuel and petroleum microbiology and has pioneered research in this area over the past two decades. He is well recognized and involved in several EU research projects, activities, committees and evaluations in areas related to microbial biotechnology and both basic and applied microbiology and biotechnological research. His expertise has been recognized worldwide and have significantly enhanced the reputation of the University of Ulster in these areas.
