    Collapse overview
    Dr. Abd El Wahed studied veterinary medicine at Mansoura University, Egypt. He received his PhD in biology from Goettingen University, Germany on the use of peptide microarrays for mapping viral B cell epitopes. Currently, he is the head of Virology laboratory at the Division of Microbiology and Animal Hygiene, Goettingen, Germany. He has participated in the development of 30 point-of-care assays for the detection of infectious agents. In 2013, he was awarded the young investigator award from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene on the establishment of a mobile laboratory for rapid detection of hemorrhagic fever viruses at low resource settings. Recently, he established a mobile suitcase laboratory for rapid detection of viruses and parasites. The mobile setup was implemented in Guinea, Senegal, Bangladesh and Brazil.
