Egyptian oncologist Yehia Abugabal was recognised by Forbes among their annual 30 Under 30 list, an inspiring collection of the world’s 600 brightest minds (30 people across 20 categories); breakout talents and change-makers across different sectors, from education, to arts, to finance, who stood out in 2016.  

The 28-year-old physician is the co-founder of the International Cancer Research Center, a Cairo-based institution devoted to fight the disease in the Middle East through dedicated teams specialised in medical oncology, radiotherapy, radiology, pathology, and surgery. The center is crucial in addressing a disease that is not only the number one cause of death worldwide, but also dramatically difficult to cure in the Middle East, one of the regions with the lowest rates of recovery for patients with breast cancer.
