Dr. Hamed, received also an MSc degree from Tel Aviv University, and PhD degree from Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) in medical science where he conducted also post-doctoral research in tissue regeneration and stem and progenitor cells. Dr. Hamed dedication to scientific research in the field of angiogenesis, endothelial progenitor cells and wound healing was recognized when he was awarded the Neufeld Price of the year award 2008 for excellence in scientific research in Israel. He has authored more than 35 significant scientific publications in the most significant peer-reviewed journals from different fields. He registered over 8 state-of-the-art patents suggesting significant treatments and solutions to significant untreatable conditions such like chronic wound healing, non-healing bones, bone regeneration and dermal filling by autologous fat transplantation. Dr. Hamed is a member of the European Tissue Repair Society (ETRS), of the World Union of Wound Healing Society (WUWHS), of the American Association of Wound Care (AAWC) and of the American Heart Association (AHA). He has participated in several European, American and national research projects and he has served as a regular reviewer for a number of international journals and conferences.

As a bright scientist, Dr. Hamed contributed significant knowledge to the field of cardio-vascular research and regenerative medicine. His early publications were the first to address directly the beneficial effect of erythropoietin on wound healing. The research performed by Dr. Hamed found that repurposing of erythropoietin for wound healing especially for diabetic foot ulcers, appears to be an excellent option because actually there is no approved drugs for this challenging problem. These publications document this emerging problem but guide primary care providers and geriatric health providers to recognize the potential use of erythropoietin in wound healing, assess the nature of the problem and apply it for wound healing. In addition, Dr. Hamed contributed to the research of the effectiveness of erythropoietin in various indications such as for bone regeneration and autologous fat transplantation. These studies emphasized contextual factors in the nonhematopoietic targets of erythropoietin. This body of work also discusses the efficacy and safety of erythropoietin in animal studies and how erythropoietin can be further developed to reach the market beyond other uses than anemia.

Being a successful entrepreneur, Dr. Hamed has been participating in several business projects, performing top managerial functions. In 2009 he established Remedor Biomed Ltd., in which serves as chief executive officer. In 2012, Dr. Hamed founded SEBANA Medical Ltd., in which I serves as chief technology officer.
