Prof.Dr Hany Elsayed Marei
Biomedical Research Center
Hany Marei, Ph.D. is a full professor since 2005, and he worked as the Head of Cytology and Histology Department, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Mansoura University, Mansoura, Egypt (1996 - May 2015). From May 2015 he moved to Qatar where he works as a project manager for Biomedical Research Center (BRC) at Qatar University (QU). His research interest lies in the field of gene expression, pathway analysis, and genetic profiling of stem cells.
He published several papers (PLOS, Genomics, Molecular Cancer, JCP) on genetic profiling of adult human olfactory bulb neural stem cells (OBNSCs) and Glioblastoma Cancer stem cells. He also published many papers about the therapeutic potential of human olfactory bulb neural stem cells (ONNSC) for neurodegenerative and traumatic diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s (PD) and spinal cord injury (SCI). He developing pre-clinical models to use OBNSC in the treatment of AD, PD and SCI. He is specially interested in exploring the molecular mechanism underlying Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and identification of common and rare variants (SNPs) associated with AD.
After arrival to QU-BRC, he published a book chapter (with Bentham Science Publishers (eBook series “Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research-Alzheimer Disorder; Vol. 4” entitled “Recent perspective about the amyloid cascade hypothesis and stem cell-based therapy in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease”. He also published a book entitled “Human Olfactory Bulb Neural Stem Cells for Cell-based Therapy of Traumatic and Neurodegenerative CNS Disorders, LAMBERST, 2016.
Regarding genomics, he recently published a review article entitled “Common and Rare Genetic Variants Associated With Alzheimer's Disease, J Cell Physiol”, 2016, and met-analysis study entitled “Landscape of NAT2 polymorphisms among breast cancer, Biomed. Pharmacotherapy, 2016. He has a very good experience and training in working with recent genomic analysis tools such as PLINK, STATA, IMPUT 2, and Galaxy for analysis of genome wide association studies (GWAS), whole genome (WGS), and exome (WES) sequence.
Dr. Marei is an editorial board member for: American Journal of Current Genetics, Accounts of Biotechnology Research, Journal of Pediatric Oncology, and Journal of Cytology and Tissue Biology. He is a reviewers in several international indexed journals such as Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, BMC Veterinary Research, and others. He is also a member for promotion of professor and associate professor at the Supreme Council of Universities, Egypt. He had defended more than 20 master and PhD thesis in Cytology and Histology, and reviewers for more than 100 papers in the field of Biology, Histology, Genetics, and Cytology.
