|Willing to be incomparable and unique in the field of Embryology, where I am sure given the opportunity to augment my skills and learn new ones in addition to my close attention to detail, I could work efficiently and professionally in any challenging fast paced environment.|
With more than 5 years of experience in Embryology & IVF and by completing my Masters degree in Clinical Embryology from the University of Leeds, UK, today I am performing an average of 200 ICSI cycles/ month on daily basis and reporting directly to the General Manager of Madina Fertility Center where I have gained most of my experience. I have gained extensive knowledge being one of the first embryologists to use the IMSI procedure in Alexandria & Egypt. Moreover, I managed the design, set up, and staff training of two satellite labs in Egypt.
I am proficient at performing a full ICSI cycle, passing through:
- Semen Assessment & preparation.
- Oocyte Handling
- ICSI procedure
- Embryo Biopsy for PGD
My aptitude to understand new methods & procedures of ART makes me eager to keep myself up to date with all the field’s changes & innovations. I am a fast learner with an eye on detail and pride myself as quite knowledgeable about the activities that that need to be taken into action while performing a full ICSI cycle.

"An embryologist should be patient, alert, calm, tolerable to pressure, always updating his knowledge and paying great attention to details. Because ART is all about details, and it is like a jigsaw puzzle, you have to do your best and work hard to fit all pieces in their right places. Also, monitoring KPIs is crucial to obtain the best results, and to locate the problem if there is any"
