Hany Emary Ali Ahmed

Assistant Professor


Hany Emary  obtained his Ph.D. degree from Bonn University in medicinal chemistry and drug design discipline. He was engaged in developing new methodologies for selectivity analysis among different promising biological targets. He was supported for7 projects by Taibah University for developing novel compounds of potential anticancer and antimicrobial activities. Until now, twenty full articles were published in scientific peer reviewed journals.


Area of Interest

His research interest was trapped amongOrganic and Medicinal Chemistry including: synthesis and biological evaluation of heterocyclic compounds,Cheminformatics: Design and evaluation of different ligand- based virtual screening approaches like 2D fingerprints in similarity searching, structure-activity/selectivity relationship analyses, and fragment-based drug discovery.In addition, molecular modelling: Protein structure prediction and sequence analysis.
