Boodor Al-Kawlani defended her doctor thesis with the title:
"Effect of Chemotherapeutic Drugs on Human Granulosa Cells"
After three years of hard work and countless hours of preparation, Mrs. Al-Kawlani succeeded in defending her thesis to get the doctor's degree. During her promotion time, she was funded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst), and the Friedrich-Schiller University.
Her thesis is concerned on the cytotoxic effects of some chemotherapy drugs on fertility in women who survived childhood cancer as long-term effect. As leukemia is the most abundant cancer in children, the question appeared, if the applied chemotherapeutic therapy harms the maturating oocytes.
