Research Fields


Management  of endemic diseases affecting liver, gastrointestinal and urinary tracts:

 Diagnosis:

Immuno-diagnosis (bacterial, viral and parasites of medical importance), tissue typing and monoclonal antibody production.
Microbiological identification and detection of emerging mechanisms in multi-drug- resistant bacteria
Protein chemistry purification, characterization and  molecular biology assays (conventional PCR, real time PCR, molecular-hybridization).
Nanotechnology applications.
Haematological, parasitological, histopathological examinations; immunohistochemical, genetic, molecular, cell image analysis and ultrastructural studies (SEM&TEM).
Radiological diagnosis; different imaging modalities (x-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging)
Endoscopic diagnosis; Upper GT endoscopy, ERCP, basic and advanced laparoscopic

Medical and surgical treatment:

Liver diseases and its complications .
Gastric, esophageal, inflammatory bowel disease, gastro-intestinal motility disorders, pancreatic and biliary diseases.
 Basic and advanced laparoscopic GIT surgery, biliary reconstruction, drainage of gallstones and obstructive jaundice.
Urinary tract, stones, incontinence, genitourinary trauma, congenital and functional, surgery of obstructive urology (resection and reconstruction of upper and lower urinary tract tumors.
Renal and hepatic transplantation.

Morbidity studies:

Impact of environmental and behavioral risk factors

Snail Control:
