Molecular Diagnosis of Viral Hepatitis
Egypt (IFMSA-Egypt) - Mansoura University, Mansoura
Microbiology &Immunology department Mansoura faculty of medicine
Prof. Dr. Mohamed Abo-Elella.
Dr. Mohamed A. El-Farash.
Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
In Egypt there is high incidence of infection with Hepatitis Virus (A, B, C viruses are most common types). So in the Microbiological Diagnostic & Infection Control Unit (MDICU) inside the Microbiology and immunology department in Mansoura Faculty of Medicine they study the viral hepatitis and its diagnosis, aiming to reach the most accurate method of diagnosis.
What is the aim of the project?
We aim to reach the most accurate method of diagnosis for viral hepatitis to treat it effectively and take further steps in Hepatitis elimination.
What techniques and methods are used?
Collecting data from patient in the patient in the microbiological diagnostic and infection control unit and will do data entry using statistical application. Also, there’s laboratory work for diagnosis of viral markers as ELISA and PCR.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The students will collect data about the prevalence of viral hepatitis after that they will do analysis of these data and data entry and finally interpretation into research paper. Also, the student will do laboratory work at the department for diagnosis of viral hepatitis under supervision of the doctors. Also, clinical observation at the department. In this project the student will be oriented about the.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Introduction seminar about the work process, what we already did and what we will do.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
clinical or preclinical student with basic knowledge of microbiology, biochemistry &molecular biology.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
