KHARTOUM (Sudanow) - Professor Ahmed Hassan Fahl has received the French Government's Order of Golden Palms in recognition of his distinguished scientific research and efforts on mycetoma disease.
The Order was awarded to him by the French ambassador to Khartoum Emmanuella Blatmann this week in a ceremony attended by several foreign diplomats and Prof. Fahl's colleagues.
The Order is bestowed by the French Republic to distinguished academics and figures in the world of culture and education.
Professor Fahal is the founding Director of the Mycetoma Research Centre (MRC) at the University of Khartoum. He successfully established the MRC from scratch by recruiting his own web of personal contacts to generate funds for the project. Today, the centre is recognised globally as a world leader and authoritative source of advice on mycetoma management and research and is now a WHO Collaborating Centre. He is a high volume researcher who has published and presented his original research extensively and has become a world authority on mycetoma.
Professor Fahal’s expertise has qualified him to act as referee for seventeen scientific journals. He has used his personal influence to generate millions of dollars’ worth of funds for various research and academic establishments.
Mycetoma is a chronic, progressively destructive infectious disease of the subcutaneous tissues, affecting skin, muscle and bone resulting in destruction, deformity and loss of function, which may be fatal.
