"I have graduated from School of Pharmacy at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt in 2016, and decided to pursue career in science after that. I learned how the use of biotechnology provides unique solution for developing theraputics, therefore, I started studying Biotechnology at the American University in Cairo. Afterthat, I was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship to pursue masters in Genetics, Genomics and Bioinformatics at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I worked on defining species-specific regulation of oligodendrocyte precursor cells homeostasis a project that gave me an opportunity to integrate benchwork with bioinformatics to derive biological findings that aim to help Multiple Sclerosis patients. With the ever-expanding genomic information, and the lack of interdisciplinary scientists analyzing this data to translate their findings into therapies, I decided to take a role in that domain through joining the Bioinformatics PhD program at the University of Michigan - Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics. I am currently affilitated to two labs (The Rao Lab & The Pasca Lab). I believe that being a part of both those research groups allows me to widen my research mindset and get exposure to multiple research disciplines where I can integrate computational biology analyses with benchwork to derive valid biological findings. My research focus is integrating single cell mutlimodal data to understand Pancreatic Cancer Adenocarcinoma Pathogenesis."
