Dr. Abdullah Hoter

Dr. Abdullah Hoter studied Veterinary Medicine at University of Cairo, Egypt, where he obtained his Bachelor degree in Veterinary Sciences in 2008. During his Master thesis work he studied the mitochondrial redox state in hepatocytes of the Arabian Camel (Camelus dromedarius). Following his Master degree in 2012, Abdullah was awarded a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in 2013 to pursue his PhD degree in the laboratory of Prof. Naim at the Department of Physiological Chemistry, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover. His PhD work is entitled “Isolation and molecular characterization of one humped camel heat shock proteins”. Up to date, little is known about the heat shock proteins in camel and Abdullah hopes his research on their structure and function would help understanding how these fascinating animals can survive very harsh living conditions in desert, especially a very high day/night temperature fluctuations. Besides, he plans to investigate their protein folding capabilities by exploring their role in rescuing misfolded proteins by using mutant human intestinal enzymes (sucrase isomaltase and/or lactase phlorizin hydrolase) as a model.
