Fatimah Binti Hashim
University of Malaya
Fatimah Binti Hashim has her expertise in protozoology and cytotoxicity based on microscopy analyses. Most of the works are on cytotoxic effects of plant compound, plant extract, lanthanide complexes on Acanthamoeba sp. (corneal scrapping and environmental isolates). Recent works are on isolation and identification of protozoan species from fish gills. Microscopy analysis based on fluorescence, scanning and electron microscopy are her interest techniques for cytotoxicity and protozoan morphological identification. Other interests are on molecular work of genotoxicity specifically by alkaline comet assay technique and DNA laddering assay.
