Following her graduation with an honours degree in dentistry and achieving a Master’s Degree in Oral Medicine from Cairo University, Egypt, she completed a period of general dental training and became a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Later on, she was awarded one of the very few academic training posts in Clinical Oral Microbiology in the UK and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists by examination. Her PhD thesis focused on the interrelationship between oral microbiome and host immune response in patients with Behçet’s Disease. For the academic merit of this work, she was awarded the Young Investigator Award in the International Conference on Behçet’s Disease, Japan, 2012.
Dr Seoudi’s current research and development interests are focused in the following areas:
Research focus: The interrelationship between host immune response and oral microbiome in human health and disease: Dr Seoudi previously highlighted that the higher level of expression of some of the unusual splice variants of Toll Like Receptor (TLR) 2 and TLR4 mRNA in the oral mucosa of Behçet’s Disease patients, explains the functional defect in TLR1/2 heterodimer and TLR4 in this patients’ group. This in turn can be expected to cause a failure in the adaptive immune response modulation resulting in abnormalities in the oral microbiome balance and the susceptibility to oral infections.
National Audit project: Recently, Dr Seoudi developed an interest in investigating the effect of antimicrobial stewardship interventions on the antimicrobial prescribing patterns in secondary dental care.
