Research Award Winner Announced

The winner of this year’s Organon Middle East Fertility Research Award has been announced.

The top prize of USD 2,500 has gone to Dr Hanna Aboulghar from Cairo, Egypt, a young scientist who works at the Egyptian IVF-ET center.

Organon, Akzo Nobel’s human healthcare business, is one of the main sponsors of the Middle East Fertility Society and presents the honor annually to the young Middle Eastern scientist who submits the best research paper.

Dr Aboulghar will give her award-winning lecture during the Organon Symposia at next month’s Seventh Annual Scientific Meeting of the MEFS, which is being held in Beirut, Lebanon, from November 15-18.

The winning paper, entitled A Prospective Controlled Study of Karyotyping for 430 Consecutive ICSI Babies, will also be presented by Dr Aboulghar to the Canadian Fertility Society at a later date.


Said Michel Abou Abdallah MD, president of the MEFS: “Dr Aboulghar is a young scientist with a very promising future and she deserves many congratulations.”
