I am a Professor of Gynaecological Oncology at the Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health at the University of Oxford and a Consultant Gynaecological Oncology Surgeon at the Oxford Cancer and Haematology Centre and is a Fellow of St Hugh’s College. I lead laboratory-based translational research in Gynaecological Oncology. My main research interest is in the surgical, medical and fundamental research into ovarian cancer. I graduated from Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt and completed my PhD and Gynaecological Oncology Surgical training at the University of Cambridge. I received my postdoctoral research training at the University of Cambridge and at the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Centre in the USA. I was appointed as a Clinical Reader in Oxford in 2010 and became a Medical Research Council Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine and Professor of Gynaecological Oncology in 2012.
