I am currently employed at Pesticide Chemistry Department, NRC, Cairo, Egypt where I have been working since 1995. I have awarded PhD in 2005, from Zoology Dept., Faculty of Science, Cairo University. The thesis title is “Toxicological Studies on Pregnant Rats Exposed to Pesticide Mixtures and Antioxidants”. The focus of my research in the last few years is the investigation of the hepatotoxic, nephrotoxic and reproductive toxicities of some environmental pollutants including pesticides on rat. However, seeking and testing many materials of antioxidant activities were evaluated for their ameliorating effects. I have been primary author or co-author on several research papers published in accredited journals dealing with hepatoprotective effects.
