Great news from the Health Sciences Research Division, School of Medicine

NGU is proud to announce that Prof. Dr Ahmed Ihab, Dr Nada El-Ekiaby, Dr Injie Fawzy and Dr Mai Zaghloul have just received a research grant from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in collaboration with the Institute of Pathology, University of Heidelberg, Germany. This is the first time for Egyptian researchers to be granted a DFG fund from Germany.

This research grant is an outcome of a long-standing cooperation in liver cancer research that started 12 years ago between Dr Ahmed Ihab’s research group and Prof. Dr Peter Schirmacher and Prof. Dr Kai Breuhahn (Institute of Pathology). The project focuses on the role of a mitogenic signaling pathway on regulating the non-coding transcriptome and hence on the progression of liver cancer.
