March 2024: Lamis Yahia Mohamed Elkheir – African Female Researcher of the Month

Lamis Yahia Mohamed Elkheir stands as a beacon of resilience and determination in the scientific community, embodying the spirit of innovation and advocacy for equity in global health. With a background deeply rooted in molecular medicine and a fervent dedication to addressing neglected tropical diseases, Lamis has not only carved a distinguished path for herself but has also become a source of inspiration for aspiring scientists worldwide.

Hailing from Sudan, Lamis’s academic journey began at the prestigious University of Khartoum, where she pursued a Master’s degree in molecular medicine from the Institute of Endemic Diseases. Her early years were marked by a fervent commitment to understanding the complexities of diseases that disproportionately affect marginalized communities. Lamis’s passion for making a tangible difference in healthcare led her to embark on a joint PhD program between the University of Khartoum and the University of Tours in France, specializing in medicinal chemistry.

However, Lamis’s journey was not without its challenges. Amidst the turmoil of conflict in Sudan, she faced obstacles that could have deterred even the most determined individuals. Yet, Lamis’s resolve remained unshaken, fueled by her unwavering dedication to advancing scientific research for the betterment of society.

It is in the face of adversity that Lamis’s remarkable resilience shines brightest. Despite a career hiatus induced by the war in Sudan, Lamis emerged stronger, more determined than ever to pursue her passion for neglected tropical disease research. Her decision to leverage data science methodologies as a means to rekindle this passion underscores her adaptability and innovative spirit, showcasing her willingness to embrace interdisciplinary approaches to tackle pressing global health challenges.

In recognition of her outstanding contributions and unwavering commitment to bridging the gender gap in data science, Lamis was honored as the recipient of the prestigious Women in Data Science 2024 Scholarship. This annual award, bestowed by the University of Liverpool’s Computational Biology Facility (CBF), serves as a testament to Lamis’s exemplary achievements and her potential to catalyze transformative change in the field of data science.

Through the scholarship, Lamis gains access to the CBF’s professional courses for a period of five years, providing her with invaluable opportunities for professional development and peer-to-peer support. Her selection as the scholarship winner not only acknowledges her individual accomplishments but also reflects the recognition of her role as a trailblazer for women in science, particularly those from conflict-affected regions.

Lamis’s dedication extends beyond her academic pursuits, as she actively champions openness in science and science communication. Through her participation in programs such as the ASAPbio Fellows program, she seeks to advance her knowledge of preprints and promote their adoption within her community. Her steadfast commitment to promoting equity in accessibility to scientific knowledge underscores her belief in the transformative power of open science in driving global progress.

As Lamis continues her journey as a pharmaceutical chemistry lecturer, researcher, and advocate for global health equity, her story serves as a powerful reminder of the indomitable human spirit and the boundless potential of science to effect positive change.
