Abdullah Ahmed

Dr. Abdullah Ahmed studied at Oxford Brookes University where he pursued a joint PhD project between the University and Evotec, focusing on characterization of the mechanism of cancer signalling to provide novel targets and cures. Based at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) in Harwell Oxford, he used a variety of different microscope systems to further his research on mTOR signaling employing fixed cell and live cell imaging using advanced microscopy. He developed and used fluorescent imaging technologies to observe localisation and interactions of proteins in conjunction with FRETFLIM (Förster resonance energy transfer measured by fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy). After finishing his studies, he joined Leica Microsystems in 2019 as an Advanced Workflow Specialist (4 years) and as of 2023 has joined the Global Business Excellence team as the Global Business Excellence Manager for widefield microscopy.
