Mohamed A. Abdel-Rahman (PhD), Associate Professor, Zoology Department, Faculty of Science, Suez Canal University, Egypt. In 2007, he obtained his PhD degree (molecular toxinology & physiology) from Suez Canal University & Okayama University (Japan). Subsequently, he awarded several postdoctoral fellowships in the UK & Mexico funded from the Egyptian Government, Kuwait & UK. His research interests are focused on the biochemical & pharmacological examination of Egyptian animal venoms with a particular focus on toxins with neurotoxic, cytotoxic and cardiovascular activity. Through the collaboration with various international groups (UNAM Mexico, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield University and Leads University), he is interested in the molecular characterization of antimicrobial, anticancer peptides and ion channel neurotoxins from scorpions, snakes and Conus using different proteomic and transcriptomic approaches. Recently, their research led to the discovery of novel antimicrobial peptides from the venom of Egyptian desert scorpions. In this regard, he has a good track record including 2 books, book chapter & articles appeared in the Journals of Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, Toxicon, JVATiTD, JAE, Com Bioch Physiol, Toxicol in Vitro, Experimental & Applied Acarology and others. In addition, Dr Abdel-Rahman is serving as a member in the editorial board of the journal of venom research (Library Publishing Media, Oxford, UK), Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases (Springer, PMC, UK), Journal of Costal Life Medicine (JCLM, China), Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine (Elsevier), Jacobs Journal of Biomarkers (Jacobs, USA), Ascian Council of Science Editors, and reviewed articles for many scientific journals and the National Geographic Magazine (USA). Member in the Council of Egyptian Society of Natural Toxins (2014-16) and in various national & international scientific societies and the associate of TWAS-UNESCO (2008-2011) & ParOwn Egypt (2009-2011) as well as the Distinguished Arab Scholar (2012). At Suez Canal University, he is teaching a wide range of undergraduate modules including biochemistry & toxinology. Also, he is involved in pharmacological aspects of many MSc & Diploma modules. The advisor & co-advisor of 7 PhD 5 MSc students.
