Ahmed Abdellatif is an assistant professor of biology at the School of Sciences and Engineering at The American University in Cairo. He received an MSc and a PhD from the University of Louisville, School of Medicine in Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology. He also earned an MBBCH and a Master of Science in anatomy and embryology from Alexandria University School of Medicine. Before joining AUC, he was an adjunct assistant professor in biomedical sciences at the Sherman College of Chiropractic and the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine and an adjunct assistant professor of bioengineering at Clemson University in South Carolina. Previously, he was the director of the biomedical sciences graduate program at Barry University in Florida. Professor Abdellatif has been involved in curriculum design for medical education and taught medical and graduate level courses in human gross anatomy, neurosciences and human physiology.
