Honors: Mohamed Moneeb Azab and Mahendran Jayaraj

Mohamed Moneeb Azab (Medicine) under the mentorship of Mahendran Jayaraj (Medicine) had his abstract accepted for presentation at Digestive Disease Week, which is the world's largest gathering of physicians, researchers, and industry in the field of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy, and gastrointestinal surgery.
