Special skills

My contribution to medical research dates back to the days of my master thesis entitled “Antibiotic resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from patients in King Abdullah University Hospital (KAUH) in north Jordan” where I worked closely with clinicians and became familiarized with the regulations of government hospitals.

My PhD thesis entitled “Antibiofilm activity from novel soil bacterial species of Paenibacillus haemolyticus strain 139SI towards new therapeutic management of chronic and recurrent tonsillitis” was my little breakthrough in the field of clinical bacteriology as I was able to identify a taxonomically-novel bacterial species with remarkable antimicrobial activity against biofilm infections using an in vivo rat model of chronic lung infection.
