With interest in Gastrointestinal Pathology, he played a role in the study of the pathogenesis of Helicobacter pylori in the development of the various gastro-duodenal conditions.
Indeed, the University community has lost a gem.
May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss and may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
