Dr. Sameh Ali published a study in a high impact journal

Dr. Sameh Ali, Director of the Center for Aging and Associated Diseases at Zewail City of Science and Technology, published a study titled “Mitochondria/membrane interactions in cellular response to stress” in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB Journal).

The study discusses how the interaction of caveolae (small invaginations of the plasma membrane) and mitochondria (the powerhouses of the cell) regulate cellular adaptation to stress through the alteration of the structure and function of mitochondria. This in turn protects cells from damage under various conditions.

FASEB boasts an impact factor of 5.71 and ranks among the top biology journals worldwide (according to Thomson Scientific's 2010 Journal Citation Reports).
