Research profile

Shymaa's dissertation focused on the molecular characterization of community acquired methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA), the leading cause of many life-threatening illnesses. For her postdoctoral work, she collaborated with many laboratories in San Diego, California, USA and in Niigata, Japan analyzing the proteome of Staphylococcus aureus and monitoring the reactions of innate immunity and airway cytokines in response to MRSA infections.
Shymaa completed her research focusing on developing novel diagnostic agents for Mycobacterium avium complex disease using proteomic approaches. She has focused for the first time on the importance of MDP1-dependent simultaneous control of the cellular functions in the long-term survival of mycobacteria and has explored the effect of MDP1 on Mycobacterial growth and metabolism.
