Dr. Abdel-Moneim is Assoc. Professor in the Department of Microbiology (Virology Division) at Taif University of Taif’s College of Medicine and also in the department of Virology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Beni-Suef University, Beni-Suef Egypt. Dr. Abdel-Moneim has 20 publications, 9 in peer reviewed international journals and 6 contributions in proceedings and scientific books. He is one of the managing editors of the BS Vet Med J and member of the editorial board of World Virology Journal as well as ad hoc reviewer for a number of international scientific journals including vaccines, Viral Immunology, Journal of Virological Methods and others. He supervised predoctoral and postdoctoral scientists from Egypt. Dr. Abdel-Moneim worked as consultant for both Governomental and private sectors for many years in Egypt. Dr. Abdel-Moneim works on virus isolation in different host systems including cell cultures i. He is familiar with working of different cell culture types ((insect cell culture; Sf9, H5 and mammalian cell culture; Vero, MDBK, 224L as well as avian one; CEK, CEF). He has profound experience in manipulating viral genomes, construction of recombinants, expression systems and in DNA sequencing technology. He developed novel transfer vectors for generation of BacMam virus for coronavirus under the supervision of Prof. G. M. Keil. Dr. Abdel-Moneim innovated new pathogenicity model of sheeppox and bovine parapoxviruses and delineated for the first time an immune-evasion strategy of sheep pox responsible for the appearance of the disease in vaccinated flocks. He isolated a novel native genotype of avian coronavirus. He has 105 published sequences for flaviviruses, coronaviruses and influenzaviruses. One of the ongoing researches of Dr. Abdel-Moneim is mapping viral diseases in the Saudi Arabia and genotyping the HCV strains circulated in the Kingdom. He also worked on CCR5 mutation among Saudi populations.
