I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Royal (dick) school of veterinary studies and based at Monogastric Research center, SRUC, Roslin Institute. After my graduation from the faculty of veterinary medicine, Mansoura University, Egypt in 2012. I become a research assistant in Nutrition and Nutritional Deficiency Diseases department where I have pursued my master's degree in Animal, Poultry, fish Nutrition and Deficiency Diseases.
