Research Interest

The main theme of Mostafa Waly research is in the area of Nutritional Biochemistry for the past 13 years. His research interests focuses on understanding the metabolic aspects of oxidative stress in relation to non-communicable diseases, including cancer, and his laboratory is interested in identifying mechanisms of hyperhomocysteinemia-mediated oxidative stress, using in-vitro and in-vivo experimental models. The productivity of my research has resulted in numerous publications in international peer-reviewed high ranking journals, acquiring numerous research grants from various national funding agencies as well as establishing a network of research activities with international collaborators.
