Sara Mina

Assistant Professor


I obtained my B.Sc. in Biology from the Faculty of Sciences-Lebanese University in 2008. I earned my M.Sc. in Human Molecular Diagnosis from the Faculty of Sciences-Lebanese University in 2010, and an MSc in Medical Microbiology from the Graduate School of Science and Technologies (EDST) Azm Center-Lebanese University. I was awarded a scholarship to pursue my M.Sc. training at the University of Angers-France focusing on the germ tubes constituents of Scedosporium apiospermum. I obtained my PhD in 2014 in Microbiology, Immunology and Biotechnology from the University of Angers-France. In 2014, I returned to Lebanon to be appointed as lecturer at Lebanese University, Lebanese International University and Beirut Arab University. I have a number of publications in peer-reviewed journals. In 2016, I joined the Medical Laboratory Technology department, Faculty of Health sciences, at Beirut Arab University as a full time assistant professor.
