Introduction

My name is Ali Hafez El-Far, I just finished a postdoctoral fellow in Nencki Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland. My research focuses on the senolytic effect of thymoquinone, caffeine, and curcumin on doxorubicin-treated colon cancer (HCT116) and breast cancer (MCF7) cells.
I finished a postdoctoral fellowship in Japan in the field of cell cancer research concerning the papaverine as an inhibitor of RAGE in 2015. I was also promoted as a visiting research in Cell Culture Department, Slovak Academy of Science for a research proposal entitled [Antineuroinflammatory potential of Nigella sativa seeds extract and its active constituent thymoquinone in in vitro model, BV-2 cell] in 2015.
I have PhD in biochemistry with postdoctoral experience in cell culture research (HT1080, MCF7, HTC116, and BV-2 cells) with therapeutic drug screening especially drugs of natural origin (Niglla sativa, thymoquinone, curcumin, caffeine, and papaverine). I have experience in Western blot, BrdU incorporation assay, SA-?gal assay, cell viability assay, cell migration assay, cell invasion assay, Annexin V assay, MTT assay, UV spectrophotometery, ELISA, and enzyme kinetics.
I am proficient in MS word, Excel, EndNote, Mendeley, GraphPad Prism, ImageJ, OriginPro, and SPSS. Also, I have ability to work independently and within a team environment.
