Hi! My name is Mahmoud and l work in Clinical Trials in the areas of Endometriosis, Idiopathic Male Factor Infertility, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Type 2 Diabetes. I am also a published author in several scientific peer-reviewed journals.
I created this website to share my knowledge and insights in effectively managing Clinical Trials, methods to streamline your workflow in research and general productivity tips and tricks.


Mahmoud graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Science (Advanced) majoring in Anatomy and Physiology from Western Sydney University. He was consistently listed on the School of Science and Health Dean's Merit List for three consecutive years, placing him in the top 10% of his cohort.

Mahmoud has completed three research projects throughout his undergraduate degree and was later awarded a Summer Research Scholarship at NICM Health Research Institute. The success of this project led to his employment as a Research Assistant across multiple research teams at NICM, School of Nursing and Midwifery, and the School of Science and Health. Due to his reputation as a conscientious researcher, Mahmoud is now employed as a Clinical Trial Officer managing several clinical projects as well as a Clinical Trial Monitor.
