Ramy K. Aziz
Ramy is faculty member in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University. He is currently a member of the National Microbial Pathogen Data Resource (NMPDR, ) affiliated with the University of Chicago and the Argonne National Lab, IL. Since the Edwards lab is a major contributor to NMPDR tools, Ramy is working in this lab at San Diego State University (SDSU), enjoying the warmer San Diego weather and learning the computational side of computational biology. His project is to improve the annotations of phage genomes and microbial pathogens.
Ramy received a Bachelors degree in Pharmacy at Cairo University in 1995, and received his PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Tennessee, Health Science Center (Memphis, TN) in 2004. He then served as Postdoc at University of Tennessee, Health Science Center. Before arriving at University of Tennessee, Health Science Center, Ramy served as Graduate Teaching Assistat at Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University.
Ramy’s research interests includes microbial pathogenesis, immunogenetics and host-pathogen interactions, virulence factor discovery and evolution of virulence especially via bacteriophage, bioinformatics/computational biology and (micro)biology education.
