Dr. Yahya Al Naggar, lecturer of Entomology and Ecotoxicology at Zoology Department, Faculty of Science, Tanta University. I got my B. Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from zoology department, faculty of science, Tanta University, Egypt in 2007 and 2011 respectively. Then I travelled to Canada, where I joined to Prof. John Giesy group at toxicology center, Saskatchewan University for my PhD project from 2012-2015. I have a great experience in pesticides toxicology, molecular techniques and ecological risk assessment of pesticides on bees, aquatic insects, birds and fishes. Moreover, my on-going research is directed toward the effects of neonics on pollinator immunity and susceptibility to different infectious diseases. I have published 9 peer-reviewed journal articles. I have awarded the scientific publication award three times from Tanta University, Egypt. Recently, I have been awarded the gold medal for best oral presentation at the 13th Asian apicultural association conference (Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
