Egyptian scientist to conduct research at Wrocław University of Life Sciences

Martyna Kostrzycka Uniwersytet Przyrodniczy we Wrocławiu

Egyptian scientist Dr El-Sayed Ramadan El-Sayed Ali has joined the University of Life Sciences in Wrcław to lead the BioExplor project, which concerns research into the mycobiomes of forest flora as a source of new bioactive compounds, carotenoids and other biopigments.

The results of the research will have an impact on the environment, thanks to the fact that the project involves the use of agro-industrial waste in the production process, thus solving the problems of safe disposal of environmental pollution. The researchers hope to discover new bioactive compounds such as antimicrobial agents, antioxidants and anticancer agents.

Dr El-Sayed Ramadan El-Sayed Ali is a graduate of South Valley University in Egypt. He completed his master’s degree in 2015 and obtained his PhD in Applied Microbiology from Ain Shams University in 2018. Also in the same year, he became an assistant professor of microbiology at the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority in Cairo.
