Egypt's Ministry of Higher Education congratulated on Sunday Egyptian chemist Shaimaa Gohar for receiving an award from the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) in recognition of her efforts in fighting hepatic diseases.

IUPAC, an international scientific organisation established in 1919 by chemists from academia and industry, is the self-described world authority on chemical nomenclature and terminology, including the naming of new elements on the periodic table.

The international organisation is awarding 118 young chemists in celebration of its 100th anniversary.

Gohar is a graduate from the chemistry department at Banha University, and is pursuing her Master’s in medicinal chemistry.

After completing her Bachelor’s degree, Gohar was awarded the prestigious fellowship ‘Scientists for the Next Generation’ by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt.

Gohar is an alumnus of the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting dedicated to Chemistry that was held in Lindau, Germany 2017.

She is also a Robert Bosch Foundation fellow at the European Forum Alpbach, which was held in Austria earlier this year.
