Dr. Faisal Mohamed Fadlelmola is an Associate Professor who has extensive regional and International academic and research experiences in cancer genomics, bioinformatics and Information Technology. He is a Fellow of the British Computer Society and Chartered IT Professional (FBCS CITP, UK), and the Fellow of Institute of Biomedical Sciences in London (FIBMS, UK) and Certified Training and Development Professional (CTDP, Toronto, Canada). He has been awarded two masters from UK, the first M.Sc. in Medical Molecular Biology from the University of Westminster, London, UK (1999) and the second M.Sc. in Computer-based Information Systems from the University of Sunderland, Sunderland, UK (2000). Then, he had been awarded his PhD in Molecular Human Genetics and Bioinformatics from the Institute of Human Genetics, University of Wurzburg in Germany (2003).
He received his postdoctoral fellowship training on Cancer Genomics and Bioinformatics at the Centre for Translational and Applied Genomics (CTAG), British Columbia Cancer Agency, British Columbia, Vancouver Canada (2004-2006). He also worked as Senior Research Associate at CTAG (January 2007-December 2008). Then, he relocated to Botswana as a founding academic staff for the newly established School of Medicine at the University of Botswana (2009-2011) where he worked as Biomedical Scientist/Assistant Professor and taught genetics/genomics, bioinformatics, health informatics and information technology to medical students. On August 2011 he joined the newly transferred Future University of Sudan in Khartoum (formerly ComputerMan College) as associate professor of cancer genomics, bioinformatics and information technology.
Since August 2012, he works as the Principal Investigator for the USA NIH H3ABioNet Sudan Node. H3ABioNet, the NIH funded Pan African Bioinformatics Network for Human Heredity and Health in Africa, is being developed to support H3Africa research projects through the development of bioinformatics capacity on the continent. In October 2014, he started working as head and founder of the newly established Centre for Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (CBSB) at the Faculty of Science, University of Khartoum, Sudan. He has been involved in a variety of research projects on topics such as cancer genomics, bioinformatics, molecular epidemiology of cancer, translational and applied genomics, mobile health and mobile learning, among many others.
