ACADEMIA AND RESEARCH
Dr. Ayman El-Hattab is also Associate Professor at the College of Medicine in the University of Sharjah. He has over 100 publications in scientific journals. He presented large number of abstracts as posters and oral presentations in several international conferences. He also conducted several clinical trials. His field of research chromosomal abnormalities, inborn errors of metabolism (metabolic diseases), mitochondrial disorders, neurogenetic disorders, cancer genetics, and novel gene-disease discovery.
Dr. Ayman El-Hattab provides clinical care for children with genetic diseases or suspected to have genetic diseases. This care includes clinical evaluation, genetic counseling, and genetic testing.
Genetic evaluation aims to identify the genetic causes of diseases which can help in directing management, providing knowledge about the disease and its prognosis, understanding the inheritance and recurrent risk, and applying prevention.
Among the numerous genetic and inherited conditions that we provide care for are:
- Developmental delay and intellectual disability.
- Chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome and others.
- Variable genetic and inherited syndromes.
- Congenital malformations and birth defects.
- Autism and other behavioral disorders.
- Metabolic and mitochondrial diseases.
- Skeletal dysplasias and deformities.
- Growth failure.
- Genetic hearing loss.
- Genetic neurological diseases.
- Genetic eye diseases.
- Family history of genetic diseases.
