This is evidenced by several intensive research projects he has undertaken over the years. When he was only a high school student, he attempted viral-mediated genome editing using the CRISPR/Cas9 system. Years later, while interning at the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, he was successfully able to genetically engineer cancer cells after months of grueling trial and error. He knew then that he had found his calling in life. He presented his innovative work in international conferences and competitions, winning several awards in the field of bioengineering. One of his proudest achievements was placing second in the SABIC Entrepreneurship competition, by proposing a novel, cost-efficient insulin production method. In the future, he hopes to collaborate with SABIC to build an insulin production plant based on this method. He was also honored as a speaker at Mawhiba's Forum at UNESCO, which focuses on gifted students across Saudi Arabia. Nowadays, he is committed to passing on his passion to future generations. To that end, he volunteers at IRADAH, where he mentors high school students in pursuing careers in STEM research.
