Dr. Ahmed Abdelmoneim is an assistant professor and clinical veterinary toxicologist at the Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, Louisiana State University. His research program focuses on understanding how environmental contaminants and chemicals of concern may impact the early development of organisms, and on developing new technologies and techniques in an effort to advance the field of toxicology and address some of the challenges facing its community. In particular, he is interested in assessing impacts on the neuroendocrine system of organisms through investigations performed at different levels of biological organization.
He earned his BVMS (2007) from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Assiut University (Egypt), and his M.Sc. in Ecotoxicology (2011) from the University of Poitiers (France). Dr. Abdelmoneim received his Ph.D. (2012) in Aquatic Toxicology from Purdue University and went on to complete two postdoctoral fellowships with a focus in toxicology at Cornell University. He authored/co-authored more than nine peer-reviewed journal articles and has been a member of several professional societies, including the Society of Toxicology and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. He provided mentorship to a number of undergraduate and graduate students who have grown to be scientists and health professionals.
