Biography

Professor Nadeem Qureshi graduated from University College London Medical School in 1986. He became a Member of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) with Distinction in 1991, achieved his MSc in Health Service Research & Technology Assessment in 1999 from the University of Sheffield, and completed his Doctorate in 2006. He originally came to the University of Nottingham as a part-time clinical lecturer in General Practice in 1994. Between 2004 and 2005 he was awarded a Harkness fellowship based in the Office of Public Health Genomics at the Center of Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. On his return from USA, he was appointed as a Clinical Senior Lecturer and promoted to Clinical Reader four years later. In 2011 he was appointed to the Clinical Professor of Primary Care post.

Current Research

Dr Qureshi is one of the leading experts on Primary Care Genetic and Genomics in the United Kingdom. He leads an internationally recognised group that focuses on translation of genetics/genomics into clinical practice, developed in tandem with advances in genomic technology and emerging screening policies. The current research and development falls into three broad areas:

  • Genetic and Genomic risk identification for common chronic disorders and inherited recessive conditions
  • Preconception, antenatal and neonatal genetic screening
  • Incorporating of genetic/genomic information in risk prediction models

------------

Recent projects of the group have included:

  • Developing a new case identification tool for familial hypercholesterolaemia in primary care
  • Evaluating cardiovascular genetic testing in primary care
  • Systematic reviews of the use of family history tools in primary care
  • The first randomised controlled trial assessing the impact of systematic family history screening in cardiovascular risk assessment
  • Systematic reviews of preconception genetic screening
  • Developing and testing complex interventions to improve the identification and management of familial cancer in primary care and non-specialist settings

Past Research

Current research is informed by my previous studies on:

  • Identifying the genetic educational needs of primary health care practitioners
  • Identifying hidden genetic morbidity in primary care
  • Developing a primary care based Family History Questionnaire
  • Improving genetic provision in primary care for communities practicing customary consanguineous marriage
  • Developing educational packages for health care practitioners involved in genetic carrier screening

Future Research

To improve the translation of genomic/genetic advances into primary care exploring:

  • Strategies to improve identification of familial hypercholesterolaemia in primary care
  • Modeling the impact of systematically screening for familial cancer in primary care
  • Novel approaches to identify the value of additional genetic markers in risk prediction tools
  • Strategies to engage middle and low-income countries in primary genetics and genomics
  • Factors that reduce access to genetic and genomic services by underserved populations
