The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research congratulated Egyptian scientist Mohamed El-Brolosy on winning the Max Bernsteil International Prize by the Max Birnstiel Organization and the Pathology Institute in Vienna for his Ph.D. research on genetic compensation.
The Egyptian Embassy in Vienna organized a celebration to honor the young Egyptian researcher in the presence of Egypt's Ambassador to Austria Omar Amer, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.
Amer conveyed Higher Education Minister Khaled Abdel-Ghaffar's greetings to Brolosy, hailing his scientific achievements.
Brolosy’s scientific research was conducted through animal experiments. He identified the molecular machinery that drives genetic compensation through transcriptional regulation.
He studied the molecular foundations of genetic compensation in zebrafish and mouse models.
