Ayman A. El-Badry,


Focus on:

- Human parasite diagnostics (Covenantal; microscopy, immune & molecular)

- Molecular characterization & Genotypic variance analysis of highly morbid and mortal human parasites; particularly; Malaria & Leishmania and intestinal protozoa.

- Transcriptomics & Development of a new family of genes serving as molecular markers for protozoa.

- Molecular characterization of water borne free living amoebae as biomarkers for water contamination.

- Novel therapeutics and anti-parasitic activity.

- Host-parasite interaction.

- Vectors & Vector-borne diseases and their control.

- Devising effective lab & research training programs for post-graduate, graduate and under-graduate medical students.

- Teaching pedagogy especially student-centered pedagogy as Problem-based learning (PBL), curriculum & course design and methods of evaluation for under & post-graduate medical students.
