Dr. Abdullah Gibriel is working as an Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
at the Pharmacology & Biochemistry Department, Faculty of Pharmacy, The British University in
Egypt (BUE). Dr. Gibriel has managed to establish the Biochemistry Division at BUE Faculty of
Pharmacy from scratch and to design theoretical and practical courses for undergraduate and
postgraduate students. Dr. Gibriel is currently leading a smart research group at BUE and has
published several peer reviewed research articles in specialized international journals with high
impact factor.
Dr. Gibriel has an outstanding research record in the Pharmaceutical field and has significantly
participated in developing various therapeutic modalities and drugs against liver, breast and colon
cancers with detailed mechanistic approaches. He is interested in system biology and in
investigating differential expression profiles and mechanistic functions for non-coding RNAs
(miRNAs and lncRNA) as reliable, sensitive and specific non-invasive biomarkers for early
diagnosis, staging and prognosis of various diseases including HCV associated hepatic disorders
(fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Dr. Gibriel also investigated epigenetic
markers and proteomic signature/profile in addition to genetic association studies to search for
new and reliable biomarkers for early disease diagnosis, prognosis and drug monitoring.
Dr. Gibriel obtained his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the Starthclyde Institute of
Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) (Strathclyde University, UK) (One of the top Pharmacy
School in the UK). He also worked as a postdoctoral Scientist in Glasgow University (UK). He is
an active member of various scientific societies such as the British Pharmacological Society (BPS),
Biochemical Society (UK) and the American Society of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
(ASBMB). He was invited as a keynote speaker in various international conferences and also
served as an active member of the editorial review board for various peer reviewed international
Dr. Gibriel has been awarded several research awards, grants and recognition certificates at both
national and international levels. He has been awarded the prestigious State Encouragement Award
for his excellent scientific contributions in the Medical Sciences field. This Award was organized
and led by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT, Egypt) which recognizes
only renowned young researchers across Egypt who have made outstanding achievements in the
field. Lately, he was granted the Outstanding Researcher Award in Pharmaceutical
field/Biochemistry from the Chamber of Asia Research Awards which is run by the World
Research Council (WRC).
