Students Achievements

Amr Ellaithy and Basim Helmy worked on a research project investigating the neuroprotective effect of Colchicine in a rotenone-induced Parkinson's disease animal model. Amr Ellaithy presented their work in the 19th International Student Congress of Medical Sciences (ISCOMS), Groningen, Netherlands, 5th-8th June, 2012 and got the best poster award in the neurology session. It was accepted for publication in the "CNS & neurological disoreder-drug targets Journal". Both students are currently working on a research project investigating the neuroprotective effect of L-Thyroxine in a rotenone-induced Parkinson's disease animal model. Basim Helmy presented their work in the National conference for Egyptian Universities' Students Research and got the 1st prize.



Amr Elaithy got a scholarship to attend the 1st Summer School in Medical & Biosciences Research & Management Scholarship. Mani, Lakonia & Athens, Greece, May 20-30, 2012. He got also ISCOMS Research Fellowship (IRF) Department of Pathology and Medical Biology. University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG), Groningen, Netherlands, June 11th-22nd, 2012. He was a clinical elective student in National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Institute of Neurology, University College London (UCL). London, UK, July 2nd-27th, 2012.



Ahmed Amer and Omar Hassan finished a research project titled "acute kidney injury complicating hepatic ischemia reperfusion injury." under the supervision of Dr Mohammed Sobh'. Ahmad Amer presented it in a poster session in the 23rd International European Student Conferance (ESC), Berlin, Germany. 17th-20th September, 2012. Omar Hassan presented it in an oral session in the National conference for Egyptian Universities' Students Research. He got the 3rd place. The same team is currently working on step 2 of the previous research. The idea is to know +ve hemoglobin Cast in Kidney after Intermittent Hepatic clamping in Rats: Study of Neurogenic Vs. Coagulopathy. This research project is under the supervision of Dr Mohamed Ahdy.



Sherif Shawer and Mahmoud Nosseir finished a research project titled "Experimental renal ischemia-reperfusion injury; does gender have any effect?" under the supervision of Dr Hussein Sheashaa'. Sherif Shawer presented it in a poster session in the 19th International Student's Congress of (bio)Medical Sciences (ISCOMS), Groningen, Netherlands. 5th-8th June, 2012. He got the session award. Mahmoud Nosseir presented it in an oral session in the National conference for Egyptian Universities' Students Research. He got the 4th place. The same team is currently working on step 2 of the previous research. The idea is to know how the castration improved the outcome of the male rats after acute kidney injury. This research project is under the supervision of Dr Yasser Othman. Sherif Shawer is starting a new research in the neuroscience field under the supervision of Dr Mohamed Salama. It is titled "Effect of Mesenchymal Stem Cells [MSCs] on Nicotine-induced Ventral Tegmental Area [VTA] morphological changes in rats"
