But today, SASTA is honored to celebrate Professor Ashraf Nabhan and Professor Bassam Dally for also being among Stanford’s top 2% most cited scientists in the world.
Professor Nabhan has been a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Ain Shams University’s Faculty of Medicine in Egypt since 2009. One question laid the foundation to Professor Nabhan’s exceptional research stature: “what’s best for my patients?”
To answer this question whenever it pops up, Professor Nabhan has always committed to evidence-based medical practice. Such commitment led him to connecting with global health authorities, such as the World Health Organization, where he has played different crucial roles, including currently as Vice-Chair of the Human Reproduction Programme Alliance.
Professor Nabhan additionally helped Cochrane establish a deeper presence in Egypt by leading the onboarding of Cochrane Consumers in Egypt for the first time. To support more physicians in following evidence-based practices, it is worth noting that Professor Nabhan also founded the Egyptian Center for Evidence-Based Medicine.
As for Palestinian-born Professor Dally, he is one of the Arab World’s top subject matter experts on sustainability and powering a green future. Since 2013, he has been a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Adelaide in Australia.
Professor Dally has published over 300 integral research papers covering various topics, including combustion science and engineering, renewable energy, renewable fuels, aerodynamics and applied laser diagnostics. Just as impressive is the fact that his research ventures are impact-driven, as he and his teams have collected over $54M in research grants. Plus, Professor Dally is a co-inventor of two patents.
Congratulations to Professor Nabhan and Professor Dally on the remarkable achievement and on their extraordinary research legacies.
