Practical Information:

YLVP is made up of four weeks divided into two modules at separate times. Module one is three weeks long and always takes place in Sweden. Module two is one week long and takes place either in Sweden or in another location. The programme is in English.

Module 1:
In Sweden, 8–26 May, 2017

During the first module, we will dive straight into the experience-based leadership training with a focus on personal and group development. You will be an active participant in several seminars and workshops that touch on topics that are important and relevant to you and your ambitions – such as diversity, human rights, transparency, tolerance and other global challenges.

A substantial amount of time will also be dedicated to feedback, active listening and reflection. During the module, YLVP aims to create a safe space for you to explore your approach to driving social change. At the same time, you are expected to take a step out of your comfort zone and challenge your own behaviour as you go along.

The module involves advanced hands-on training with digital tools, tactics and security. All parts of the programme will be led by facilitators working actively in their respective field. Practical group assignments and project work run throughout the module in combination with at least one study visit to relevant Swedish organisations or institutions.

Module 2:
14–20 October, 2017 (location to be decided)

The second and final module takes place a few months after the end of Module 1, after you’ve had time to start implementing the lessons from the first module into your work. It will take place in Sweden or in another location.

The focus during Module 2 will be to maintain, build and expand the network, to continue the learning journey and follow up the development of your work. Just as the first module, this one includes workshops and seminars with speakers and builds on the sharing of the participants’ own experiences and knowledge.

Please note that the Young Leaders Visitors Programme is an intensive programme and all selected participants will have to commit to participating in all activities of both Module 1 and 2.

مع تزايد حالات الإصابة بالتهاب الكبد الوبائي C لتصل إلى 150,000 حالة جديدة سنويًا، فإن مصر لديها أعلى معدلانتشار للمرض في العالم يصل إلى 15٪ بين البالغين. مما يكلف نظام الرعاية الصحية في جميع أنحاء البلاد حوالي 3.8 مليار دولار سنويًا، أي ما يقرب من 1.4٪ من الناتج المحلي الإجمالي للبلاد. 

في مبادرة للقيام بأبحاث متعددة التخصصات بقيادة مركز علوم الجينوموبالتعاون مع مركز علوم المواد في مدينة زويل للعلوم والتكنولوجيا، طور الباحثون أداة تشخيص لفيروس التهاب الكبد الوبائي C، وذلك باستخدام بصمة الفيروس الجينية  وجزيئات الذهب المعدلة (AuNPs ) للكشف المباشر والكمي في عينات المرضى.

على الرغم من التطورات السريعة في العلاج، لا يزال التشخيص هو العامل الرئيسي في مكافحة فيروس التهاب الكبد الوبائي C. إن حجر الزاوية في الحرب ضد الفيروس يكمن في ابتكار وسائل للتشخيص تكون في متناول الطبقة الفقيرة من المجتمع المصري. الأساليب الحالية مثل الـ PCR غالية الثمن، وتستغرق وقتا طويلًا وتتطلب مختبرات مجهزة تجهيزًا جيدًا.

ابتكر الفريق العلمي بالمدينة تكنولوجيا تشخيص جديدة أرخص وأسرع، حيث تجني النتائج في 30 دقيقة. يقول أ.د. شريف الخميسي، مدير مركز علوم الجينوم، "قد يساعدنا هذا على الوصول إلى الملايين من المصريين الذين يعيشون في العشوائيات والمناطق الريفية ممن لا يستطيعون الوصول علي التقنيات غالية الثمن الموجودة حاليًا،" وأضاف، "أسلوب التشخيص الجديد لديه حساسية تقارب الطريقة المستخدمة حاليًا بحوالي عُشرالتكلفة."

يعمل فريق المدينة علي سبل طرح تكنولوجيا التشخيص المبتكرة في الأسواق. وقال الخميسي موضحًا،"نحن الآن بحاجة للتحقق من  قدرتنا على إنتاج هذه التكنولوجيا على نطاق واسع. لذا نحن بحاجة للاستثمار في مراقبة وضمان الجودة خلال عملية الإنتاج."

كما أظهرت التكنولوجيا المبتكرة أيضًا قدرة على استخدامها كأداة للكشف الكمي عن العديد من الأحماض النووية، مما يفتح المجال لاستخدامها في اكتشاف العلامات البيولوجية في أمراض أخرى مثل السرطان وأمراض القلب.

نشر الباحثون نتائج دراستهم في الدورية العلمية Biosensors and Bioelectronics ذات عامل تأثير 7,476، في 4 نوفمبر 2016. ويتكون الفريق البحثي من د. شريف شوقي، زميل ما بعد الدكتوراة في مركز علوم الجينوم، أحمد عوض، وولاء علام، طلاب درجة الدكتوراة في المركز نفسه، د. محمد الكردي، مدير مشارك مركز علوم المواد، تحت قيادة أ.د الخميسي، مدير مركز علوم الجينوم.
