MBBS (Karachi), MSc (Oxford)
Tissue Coordinator and Enucleator
My work involves facilitating cadaveric tissue donation for research (testes, brains and spinal cords) and transplant (heart valves and eyes). This service is a joint collaboration between the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford and the Oxford Cell and Tissue Biobank, Oxford University Hospitals NHS FoundationTrust. The donated tissues are banked in the Oxford Brain Bank, Oxford Cell and Tissue Biobank and Lions Moorfields Eye Bank. I have a background in medicine (MBBS, Dow Medical College, University of Karachi) and embryology (MSc, Jesus College, University of Oxford) and a personal interest in organ and tissue donation.
