AGYA Alumni Jointly building bridges into the future
I am an Internal Medicine Resident and Principal Investigator at the Department of Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Rheumatology, Charité-University Medicine Berlin. My research group is supported by a Lichtenberg-Professorship provided by the Volkswagen Foundation. My laboratory is located at the German Rheumatism Research Center and Charité-University Medicine-Campus Benjamin Franklin, Berlin, Germany.
My expertise lies in combining clinical and basic research with cutting-edge technologies to deliver high-impact translational research in gastroenterology and chronic inflammatory diseases.
My Arab-German cultural background, education in Egypt, doctoral and postdoctoral research in Germany and Europe, and clinical education will strengthen my capacity to promote the interaction between the German and Arab scientific communities through my activities in AGYA. I contributed to the AGYA Working Group 'Health and Society', where I initiated new projects in collaboration with German and Arab colleagues focusing on the impact of microbiota, diet, and environmental factors on various relevant metabolic diseases in these very different geographic locations.
