Ahmed Elmontaser Mohamed, a Veterinarian graduated from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, in Sudan University of Science and Technology, holding M.Sc. degree in Microbiology, His research for master was related to Immunology (Antimicrobial Effect of Serum Peptides of Sudanese Domestic Animals).


He is now a PhD student in Veterinary Research and Animal Biology program at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, being part of the group of Prof. Dr. Maren von Köckritz-Blickwede (Infection Biochemistry) at the Institute of Physiological Chemistry and Research Center for Emerging Infections and Zoonoses (RIZ)


His project “Immunomodulatory effect of cow versus camel milk exosomes” will help to understand the correlation between exosomes and the immunomodulation that can be undertaken by the immune system against bacterial infection. In Middle East, the camel milk considered as a common popular natural drink, especially in Sudan, where total numbers of camels exceed 45 million. Traditionally the local tribes in Sudan believe, from their long experience, that the camel milk can actually prevents and treats many bacterial infections, e.g. tuberculosis, and other intestinal infections, but Saxena and Kavita have proved this just few years ago in 2015. Camel milk exosomes might carry the potentials for recovery of several illnesses. This study will help to identify new therapeutic targets based on milk product, which could be developed further as new therapeutic treatment strategies against antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection. In addition this project will spot the light on milk derived Exosomes; comparing different isolation and molecular characterization techniques as well as testing Exosomes effect on Human Intestinal tissue culture model “caco-2 cells” infected with zoonotic bacterial agents.
