Diab Husein

Diab Husein studied biochemistry (B.Sc) at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University in Hanover, he wrote his thesis entitled "The effect of hypoxia on the lipid composition of human neutrophils" at the Institute of Physiological Chemistry of the University of Veterinary Medicine Hanover. He then completed the Master Program Biochemistry at the Hanover Medical School. He achieved his master's thesis entitled "The Interaction between NPC2 and NPC1 and its implication in the Pathogenesis of Niemann-Pick Type C Disease" at the Institute of Physiological Chemistry of the University of Veterinary Medicine Hanover and received his master's degree in 2018.

 

Since June 2018, Diab is working as a PhD student in the group of "Biochemistry and pathobiochemistry of membrane and protein transport" at the Institute of Physiological Chemistry of the University of Veterinary Medicine Hanover under the direction of Prof. Naim. Diab will perform a research on the pathogenesis of sucrase-isomaltase mutations (sucrase isomaltase is a digestive enzyme that cleaves sucrose (household sugar) and starch). The sucrase-isomaltase mutations may affect the structure, activity and trafficking of the enzyme leading to digestive difficulties. In his work, Diab will study the contribution of these mutations to divergent bowel diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome.
