I am currently a specialty trainee and registrar in clinical genetics. I work within various areas of clinical genetics including but not limited to paediatrics, adult cancer, and prenatal genetics.
My specialist interests include neurogenetic and neurometabolic disorders.
I am currently undertaking a PgCert in the interpretation and clinical application of genomic data at St George's, University of London.
Before joining the department of clinical genetics in 2021, I finished my general training in paediatrics at Cairo University children's hospitals. I was subsequently appointed as an assistant lecturer then as a lecturer of paediatrics at Cairo University where I finished my subspecialty training in paediatric neurology and paediatric metabolic medicine.
I subsequently obtained a doctorate of medicine in paediatrics (M.D.) with research on clinical and genetic spectrum of epileptic encephalopathies in Egyptian infants and children.
I subsequently joined a fellowship in paediatric inherited metabolic disorders at GOSH in 2019, followed by a fellowship in metabolic medicine at Cambridge University hospitals in 2020-2021 before joining the specialty training in clinical genetics.
