My current role

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.

Previous history

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.
