From my postgraduate experience; I secured more than 25 years experience in Molecular and genetic Immunology, Immunodiagnoses, and Immune regulation of autoimmune and parasitic diseases. I graduated from Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science at Beni Suef University in 1992 with a distinction degree. I was awarded my M.Sc. degree in Immunology and Parasitology from Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Cairo University, Egypt in 1996. In my M.Sc. thesis, I used the murine model of schistosomiasis to study the immune-regulatory role of neuropeptides in granulomatous inflammation. I was keen to develop an understanding of how neuro-immuno-modulation plays an important role in hepatic granuloma formation and subsequent liver fibrosis during murine schistosomiasis mansoni. In May 2004, I was awarded my PhD degree in Immunology from the Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Cairo University, Egypt. The aim of my thesis was to develop a protective vaccine against Schistosoma infection. I have investigated the protective capacity of in situ UV-irradiated cercariae in the protection of reservoir hosts of Schistosoma mansoni as well as humoral and cellular factors that involve in such protection. I have been work as an assistant professor of Immunology in Faculty of Science at Beni Suef University from 2004 to 2007, and during this period I have carried all immunology courses for both under and post-graduated students. I have supervised three M.Sc. thesis during this period.
I have joined College of Medicine, Taif University as an Assistant Professor of Immunology in August 2007. I have charged in teaching courses of Medical biology, Immunology, and Parasitology for Medical Colleges (College of medicine, College of Pharmacy, College of Medical Applied Sciences, and Dental College) at Taif University. I have been promoted for Associated Professor degree in 2009 and I have become a full Professor in 2014.
