Dr. Rasha Rashad Ahmed is a professor of molecular cell biology in Zoology Department, Faculty of Science, Beni-Suef University, Egypt, having over 50 publications and supervised 30 Master and Ph. D Thesis. She has published an e-book entitled "Antimicrobial and antitumor substance(s) produced by Actinomycetes" and is an editor in-chief, editor and/ or a reviewer of many esteemed journals. She is also a member in many scientific organizations and attended many conferences and special and general training workshops. She participated in the following funded projects: A PI of the projects "The role of TNF-α and ammonia in hepatic fibrosis experimentally-induced by thio-acetamide in male albino rat" and "Assessment of the improvement efficacy and mechanisms of action of citrus peel extracts and flavonoids in experimentally-induced arthritis". A Co – I of the project "Assessment of the maternal rat exposure to lithium on the development of hypothalamus-pitutary-thyroid axis of their neonates" and a member of the projects entitled "Therapy of type 1 and 2 Diabetes mellitus with stem cells and adult somatic cells trans-differentiated into pancreatic–cells by direct reprogramming" funded from Beni-Suef University Research Center, "Effect of certain natural products on diabetic wounds in rats" "Search for novel anti-carcinogenic algal constituents targeting the initiation, promotion and progression of chemical hepato-carcinogenesis in experimental animals", “"Search for novel anti-hyperglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic plant and algal constituents affecting the mediators of insulin resistance in experimental obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus".
Prof. Dr. Rasha Rashad Ahmed Mahmoud research focuses on exploring the toxic effects of some microbes, food additives and nano-materials and the use of stem cells and natural products in treatment of certain diseases such as diabetic wounds, epilepsy, cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, hypo- and hyperthyrodism, Rehumatoid arthritis, liver failure.....etc in different experimentallyinduced models. Moreover, she tested the antitumor activity of actinomycetes on different normal and tumor cell lines and the effect of certain natural products on certain microbe-related diseases.
