Gaby Fahmy, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Biology

The human body and its miraculous systems have always amazed me. Biology was my preferred subject all through my undergraduate studies, so, it was natural for me to pursue a medical degree as my graduate studies. Thereafter, I wanted to continue to study in preparation for an academic career. Between that and researching, I ended up with my PhD in Histology/Pathology. Now, looking back on more than twenty years of teaching undergraduate medical, dental and nursing students as well as graduate nursing students, I thank God and hope for more success. I believe that a good educator is one who guides the student to become an independent seeker of knowledge. It is my duty to make each and every student that I teach keen to learn more in a welcoming atmosphere furnished with up-to-date technology.

Field of Interest

My experience in histo/pathological research specifically targeted the effect of drugs and diseases on the various body organs and their tissues. The use of electron microscopy and new histochemical methods used in my researches enhanced and clarified many cellular findings. My goal is to continue research in this field.
