Aboubakr Mohamed Salama
Aboubakr Mohamed Salama is a cardiologist and a basic scientist. Throughout his clinical practice he is committed not only to relief of patient suffering but also to find a permanent solution for their problems. As a futurist, he is probing the possible biotechnological solutions for the unresolved cardiovascular problems and exploring the possible translational applications. He believes that starting from the small molecules ends up having perfectly functioning organs.
He graduated from faculty of medicine Zagazig University, Egypt, earned master in cardiology in 2015 from the same university and studied a master of biotechnology in the American university in Cairo, Egypt. He is now a PhD student of cardiovascular sciences Verona University, Italy under the INVITE project focusing on basics of organ injury, injury signals and injury reversal and curing.
