Prof. Ayman has ~100 scientific papers and research projects (funded) either published or presented.

-His research interests are

Clinical & Diagnostic (Conventional, Immuno and molecular) Parasitology, Molecular parasitology, parasite bioinformatics, Novel therapeutics of Parasitic Diseases and vector & vector borne diseases. His research is primarily focused on molecular diagnostics and genotypic variance analysis of human parasites that have great impact on human health in addition to microscopy and immunodiagnostics.

-He worked in different European and one USA labs and with great scientists in field of molecular parasitology and to make and collaborate will a network in-between his lab and international labs at the same time collaborated with tropical endemic countries.

His experience enabled him to develop, independent research programs and he was the founder and the head of Lab of Molecular Medical Parasitology (LMMP) for >3years.

-Over 20 years, he has been devising effective lab & research training program and teaching undergraduate & postgraduate medical students, nationally and internationally (Medical Parasitology, Clinical & Diagnostic Parasitology, Immuno-parasitology & Molecular Parasitology, Parasite [Protozoa & Helminth] Ultrastructure, Microscopy & Medical Terminology Subjects & courses) and supervised many post-graduate students' theses.

-His academic interests are

in medical education, developing effective teaching pedagogy, curriculum & course design and methods of evaluation. His pedagogical style strives to combine a variety of approaches, using blended learning and horizontal & vertical integrated learning, in order to keep students engaged, and develop students’ problem solving skills. He strives to integrate as much hands on applied science opportunities as possible.

His policy to involve students as much as possible in research. He is committed to making sure that He remains accessible for all his students, by providing sufficient open office/lab hours for students to consult hem and discuss any questions/areas of interest they might have.
