Reenam Khan

Reenam S. Khan BSc (Hons), MBBS, MRCP

MRC-Funded Clinical Research Training Fellow, Centre of Liver and Gastrointestinal Research, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Reenam Khan is an early career researcher at the University of Birmingham, working under the supervision of Professor Phil Newsome. During her undergraduate studies, Reenam undertook an intercalated BSc in Surgery and Anaesthesia, passing with first class honours. She subsequently graduated from Imperial College London with triple distinction in the Medical and Clinical Sciences, and Clinical Practice.

Her foundation training rotations in the South-West Thames deanery motivated her towards Gastroenterology, as a specialty which offers the opportunity to combine intellectual and procedural-based clinical practice, with ample opportunities for scientific discovery. In 2014, Reenam was appointed as Academic Clinical Fellow (ACF) in Gastroenterology & Hepatology at the University of Birmingham- a three-year programme allowing her to spend 25% of her training time in the lab.

She used this time to work on development and characterisation of a murine model of alcoholic hepatitis (Disease Models and Mechanisms, 2020), partially funded by a grant she was awarded from CORE. In addition, she used this time to publish a number of high-impact review articles relating to NAFLD. The data gathered during the ACF was used towards a successful application to the Medical Research Council for a Clinical Research Training Fellowship. Her project is investigating the potential of bone marrow stromal cells, called Multipotent Adult Progenitor Cells, as a novel treatment for alcoholic hepatitis.
