Background

Abd was born and until recently lived in Damascus, Syria. Because of the war in Syria he was forced to stop his medical school studies and leave his country. Abd traveled through Lebanon, Turkey, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Austria and arrived in Germany in October, 2015 where he has settled in Frankfurt.

As part of the academic welcome program at J.W. Goethe University he is now learning German in order to apply for medical school and complete his medical studies. While he is preparing to apply for medical school he has joined Prof. Barker’s research team in the Frankfurt Initiative for Regenerative Medicine (FIRM), at the Goethe University.

Abd’s long-term goal is to complete his medical studies and specialty training in Germany and then return to Damascus to teach at the medical school and help rebuild his country.
