I am currently a visiting Professor at the University of Bonn and Adjunct Professor of Bioinformatics at the University of Jena. My main research lies in the interface between molecular biology, medicine and computational modeling providing a systems biological approach to scientific discovery. I am particularly interested in understanding the mitotic control mechanisms which are crucial for cancer research.
With my membership in the AGYA, I want to expand the establishment of the newly grown fields Bioinformatics and Systems Biology in the Arab world.
