Goran Mohammad

PhD in Biomedical Science


Visiting Postdoctoral Research Scientist

I completed my PhD in Biomedical Science at University College London in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Stephen Pereira and Dr Dipok Dhar, where I investigated the role of metabolic enzymes in progression and development of pancreatic cancer, specifically I studied the pyruvate kinase M2 and Lactate dehydrogenase A enzymes as a diagnostic marker and therapeutic target for pancreatic cancer.

After PhD graduation, I joined prof. Lakhal-Littleton’s group at department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics, University of Oxford, as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant.  Projects of our group focus on the role of hepcidin and ferroportin in the intracellular and extracellular iron homeostasis, and its effect on the human health. I am currently focusing on the study of the role of hepcidin/ferropertin axis in iron regulation in the heart (cardiovascular system), the kidney, the placenta and the vasculature, by utilising novel animal models of tissue-specific alterations in iron metabolism.
