What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I am an Associate researcher professor at the Department of Parasitology and Microbiology, Medicinal and aromatic plants research institute, NCR, Sudan and an Assistant professor at College of Pharmacy, Prince Sattam Bin Abdulaziz University, KSA. My research work is in genomic analysis of multidrug-resistant bacteria and finding alternative drugs from the medicinal plant for these resistant bacteria. I also teach Microbiology and immunology.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I am excited about openness, transparency and access to scientific research. I am passionate about using preprints for the dissemination of discoveries and their potential as tools to promote collaboration and boost the interconnection of the scientific communities.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
Participating in this program will not only provide me with an opportunity to learn more insight into the preprints in the life sciences, but it’d also help me to gain knowledge and make the connections needed to make preprint education possible. After that, I can share this information with my colleagues.
