Dr Eman Shakir


After earning my Biochemistry degree from Kingston University London in 2013, I pursued a PhD at the same institution, successfully completing it in 2022. Following that, I was selected for a Lectureship in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Kingston University's School of Life Sciences in 2023. Currently, my teaching responsibilities encompass various bioscience programs. In terms of research, my focus lies in the field of cell biology, specifically on schistosomes—a significant group of parasites responsible for human schistosomiasis, a neglected tropical disease.
