Title: IB PhD Student
Dept/Program: Chemical Engineering


I earned my medical degree from Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt. After that, I started my residency in neurosurgery and in the meanwhile, I earned another degree; master's of science in surgery.

After I finished my residency, I got awarded a scholarship to study MBA-Healthcare management in the USA. Here I got involved in a basic research about spinal cord injury (SCI) and I liked it and wanted to continue it.

Therefore, I joined this PhD program to continue my research in stem cell engineering for the treatment of SCI. I work in Dr. Leipzig's lab in Chemical and Molecular Engineering department.
