Course Tutor for the MSc in Genomic Medicine

I am Course Tutor for the MSc in Genomic Medicine. My academic journey began with an Honors degree in Pharmacology, leading to further studies in Biotechnology and Translational Medicine at the American University in Cairo and the University of Manchester. My passion for genomics blossomed during my Ph.D. at the University of Leeds, where I delved into cardiovascular genomics. Currently, as a course tutor for the MSc in Genomic Medicine at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, I combine my expertise with a commitment to education. In my role, I am privileged to contribute to the development of the MSc in Genomic Medicine, a programme that explores the transformative potential of genomics across clinical, research, and industry domains. The MSc programme, which began in October 2022, seeks to empower graduate students from diverse backgrounds, including biological and biomedical sciences, healthcare, and industry professionals, to navigate the exciting frontier of genomic medicine.
