Ali Kishk

role for IBT_2016: teaching assistant

After I got my BS in pharmaceutical science 2014, I focused to get in the wonderful science “Systems biology” from Online Courses. Since college, in the Faculty of the pharmacy Mansoura University, I was very interested in science communication and scientific research. I didn’t fulfill what I was hoping to in scientific research, but my obsession became to organize medical and clinical courses to the students by different lecturers. Turning to Online Courses ”MOOCs” and workshops in OMICs sciences, after I got my B.S. to link between biotechnology and the pharmaceutical science. I found this link in the field of Systems pharmacology in the Systems Biology specialization offered by Coursera. With my passion in science communication, I began blogging about the free online courses. My main interest lies in the field of Systems Pharmacology where I can find new pathways or new side-effects of a FDA-approved drugs without the 1.2-Billion-dollar system on clinical trials on a new drug.
