  • I am interested in the researches related to zoonotic infections, the infections that originate in animals and transmitted to the human especially those responsible for food poisoning. There are more than 250 zoonotic infections and those responsible for food poising are most important in our area because of the improper conditions of handling and keeping as well as increasing of temperatures during summer season which lasts for several months. Moreover, our community is more consumable with increasing in the numbers of cafeterias and restaurants which sometimes do not follow public health recommendations. Beside of zoonotic infections, I am interested in the researches related to peptic ulcer caused by Helicobacter pylori which is widespread in our society and caused more than 60% peptic ulcer.
