My most prominent accomplishment is the recent characterization of a novel hereditary cancer predisposition syndrome due to germline mutation in BAP1 gene. The syndrome is associated with predisposition to different cancers. Or manuscript describing the syndrome has been selected as the editor's choice and currently being features free of charge at the journal's website.
Several of my other manuscripts appeared in highly ranked journals such as JMG, JCO, CCR, IOVS. Although, publications in the field of ocular oncology usually don't receive large number of citations, contrary to other common cancers, my publications have been cited 85 times (69 without self citations) and my current H score is 6.

I am a strong believer of investing in undergraduate students' research especially for highly talented candidates. My strategy is to select one or two students/year who I train and give independent research project. I try to limit the number of students rotating in the lab at any time to maximum of two students so I can have sufficient time for mentoring. Although working with undergraduate students is rather challenging I find it highly rewarding.
In addition to the long term projects carried out by selected undergraduate students I accept other undergraduate and medical students for shorter rotations depending on their expertise and research interests. .
Since the start of my faculty appointment at OSU in 2009 I mentored four undergraduate students Benjamin Christopher, Omar Saqr, Samidha Gupta and Tiffany Wang each for more than a year. I also mentored a medical student Benjamin Romney research project.
I haven't had a chance of advising graduate students at OSU, but I have been on the advising committee of several graduate students in Egypt
