Dr Ahmad Haidery

Lecturer

School of Life Sciences and Education

I am a lecturer in Biological and Biomedical Sciences with clinical experience in Haematology and Transfusion. The aim of my teaching is to create an environment that focuses on knowledge construction rather than knowledge transmission where students use high-order cognitive activities to generate solution as opposed to memorising disconnected facts.

Professional memberships and activities

  • Fellow of Higher Education Academy
  • UK Society for Extracellular Vesicles

Academic qualifications

M.D in curative medicine from Kabul Medical University (1997), MSc (2011) in Biomedical Sciences, PhD in cancer immunology from London Metropolitan University (2015). PGCert in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (2017).

Publications

My research interest is mainly in cancer immunology and biology of tumour. My PhD research program was based on the study of Microvesicles as a communicative vector between normal cells and cancer cells. My thesis is titled: ‘’THE ROLE OF MICROVESICLES ON EPITHELIAL TO MESENCHYMAL TRANSITION (EMT), AND TUMOUR MICROENVIRONMENT’’.
