Imran obtained the undergraduate qualification in Pharmacy (B.Pharm., with Distinction) from the J.N. Technological University, India in 2003. For further education, he moved to the UK and completed an M.Sc. in Pharmacology (with Merit class) at the Sheffield Hallam University in 2005. He stepped on the research career ladder with his first research position at the University of Nottingham. During his tenure, he was generously funded by the Fight for Sight to pursue Ph.D. (Ocular Immunology; 2006 to 2010) under the supervision of Professor Harminder S. Dua. In April 2010, he completed Ph.D. (honored with 'Andrew Hendry Endowed Postgraduate Research Award' for research excellence) and subsequently moved to America for a postdoctoral training position (2010 to 2014) with Professor Wen-Chao Song at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA. Following successful postdoctoral training, he later served as an Assistant Professor of Immunology (teaching-track) at the Qassim University, KSA for one year. In 2015, he was provided with an exciting opportunity to work as an eponymous senior scientist in the field of Ocular Immunology, which led him to move back to the University of Nottingham. Currently, Imran is working as a Senior Research Fellow with an independent research focus in the fields of antimicrobial peptides and the complement biology.
