Following a recent conversation with Prof. Talaat Farag, I was encouraged to read the full story about Prof. Fahd Al-Mulla in the Ambassadors Online Magazine's MEGASTARS section.
I was moved and fascinated by what I read and admire Prof. Mulla's resilience, perseverance, and determination to fight and overcome the major obstacles encountered since childhood - which are inspiring.

researcher in human genetics, molecular medicine, medical
biochemistry and metabolism.
