Mohammed is KHCC Professor of Cancer Care Informatics, a joint role secondment between King Hussain Cancer Center (KHCC), Jordan and the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, UK. He appears to be the first Cancer Care Informatics professor awarded this title. He co-directs KHCC Cancer Care Informatics with Prof AbdelGhani Tbakhi, KHCC's Chair of Cell Therapy and Applied Genomics and Chair of the Research Council.
Mohammed is also the co-director, and co-founder of the 1st International MSc Programme in Cancer Care Informatics that is jointly run with KHCC and the University of Jordan.
Professor Odeh’s research innovation and leadership is deeply focused on “Next Generation Cancer Care Through Knowledge-driven Requirements Engineering informed by semantic enrichment, process and data analytics” jointly with KHCC in Jordan and UWE Bristol, UK.
Mohammed’s research deeply integrates legal, ethical, social, and professional requirements into his research and development initiatives and projects.
Mohammed has more than 36 years of research and development in the engineering of software systems with research frameworks in systems of systems with reference to Cancer Care and Aerospace. While heading the UWE Bristol Software Engineering Research Group 2012-2020, he directed a number of PhD research projects that culminated in a number of ontology-based research frameworks such as OntoREM, OntoQF, BPAOntoSOA, GQ-BPAOntoSOA, BPAontoEIA, BPAOntoKME, iOntoSoS.GORE, iOntoSoS.BPA.ChM, and iOntoSoS.QM.Gov.
His first joint ontology-based research framework with Airbus yielded OntoREM (Ontology-driven Requirements Engineering Methodology) while being the UWE Bristol principal investigator with Airbus’s Principal Investigator, Dr Mario Kossmann. OntoREM is US patented (US9372667B2) and expires in 12/05/2033.
Mohammed co-founded, co-chaired and co-organised the 1st International Conference on Cancer Care Informatics (IEEE Approved and Technically Co-Sponsored Conference) under the patronage of HRH Princess Ghida Talal, Chairperson of King Hussein Cancer Foundation and Center, in partnership with the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK, and Presidency of Dr Asem Mansour, the Director General of King Hussain Cancer Center: https://cancercareinformatics.org/cci/
To-date, Professor Odeh has supervised 20 PhD students, nine of these PhD theses related to Cancer Care Informatics and used case studies from King Hussein Cancer Center.
Mohammed has also been supervising several MSc dissertations, some that had their dissertations associated with Airbus and Cancer Care Informatics case studies.
The first founding stone into Mohammed’s CCI path seemed spinning off through the directing of the PhD research of Professor Faisal Abuelrub (2003-2006, PhD awarded by UWE Bristol) for developing a methodological approach that integrated process and quality requirements modelling to improve cancer care processes, with the research case studies jointly undertaken at King Hussain Cancer Center.
Mohammed has contributed to generating a total research funding is in excess of £3.5M as the sum of contributing to EU FP5, FP6 funded research projects, industrial Knowledge Exchange Partnerships, recruitment on research/taught programmes, and research funding through leading the innovation and development of research scholarships. The most early grounding research career in health informatics was through EU FP5 MammoGrid Projects (with Prof McClatchey as the UWE PI), the first European Commission Medical Grid research project with the consortium that included CERN in Geneva, UWE Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford Universities in the UK, Pisa, Sasri, and Teriste in Italy.
Mohammed has been external and internal examiner for PhD research degrees and acted as independent chair for PhD theses’ examinations. Mohammed has been undertaking leading role in developing young researchers, research cultures, and new research supervisors as a product of the PhD co-supervision processes involving new supervisors and especially while heading the UWE Bristol, UK Software Engineering Research Group 2012-2020
Mohammed been Invited keynote speaker in many occasions for more than two decades with the latest IEEE MENA 2020 Biomedical Engineering Conference on “The Landing of The Cancer Care Informatics as a Formal Discipline”.
He was associate editor of the INCOSE/Wiley leading Systems Engineering Journal alongside international reputable scholars associate editors in Systems Engineering under the lead of the Chief Editor, Prof DeWeck, an MIT Professor and Dean.
He is also a member of the International INCOSE Systems of Systems Engineering Group and also Systems Engineering Education Review Committee. Mohammed has less than 100 publications as conference, journal papers, and book chapters (including two books in 2022).
