Nationality: Sudanese

Date of Birth: 25th April 1971


Arabic: (mother tongue).

English: (spoken + written) fluent.

German: (spoken + written) very good.
Profile: As a virologist and academic lecturer, I have been working on viruses that are related to human and health issues. Relatively, I have been interested in the development of the bacteria resistance against chemotherapeutic agents that is becoming an increasing problem specially the Multi Drugs Resistant Bacteria (MDR), and this had the potential to facilitate more rational thinking about the Bacteriophages’ therapy for the increasing incidence of bacteria resistant against most antibiotics. I have been working in scientific research with similar challenges using my experience to help work anticipate and respond more quickly and effectively.

Objectives: The main objectives are; managing the applications of Bacteriophage conceptions as integrated therapeutically framework. These include; specific knowledge of virological research administration, lows regulations, problems analysis, evaluation of issues that support economic progression in the section, achievement of the work and priorities towards the protection of microbiological and sustainable development and other related duties as required.

Career: Virologist PhD: Microbiology in general and Virology for particular specialization

Professional Experience:

  • December 2014 up to date: Virologist Researcher: Karary University:
