Dr. Khalil is a Research Associate in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics /Faculty of Medicine at the American University of Beirut. Her research interest is in the field of genetics and molecular oncology. Her studies mainly focus on the molecular signature of lung cancer, spanning the spectrum from basic to translational medicine and using multiple omics approaches. In parallel, Dr. Khalil has been actively involved in understanding the familial inheritance of several diseases such as congenital heart malformations and skin anomalies using next-generation sequencing technologies and bioinformatics. This background and expertise have helped in positioning Dr. Khalil as one of the leading personnel in COVID-19 research in Lebanon. Her studies aim at understanding the susceptibility and prognosis of SARS-CoV2 infection from a genetic perspective in this population.
