(Student Profile)

Dr Nadia Ali

I was born in Iraq and moved to Jordan to complete my school and undergraduate education. I then travelled to the UK with my husband and settled in Manchester to continue my study at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I’ve enjoyed every minute. Manchester is a very good place to study and live. It is a multicultural city with all the wonderful facilities you would expect to find in a modern city: childcare, a diverse range of schools and places of worship, public libraries, healthcare facilities, sports and leisure centres, retail outlets, parks and public spaces. Equally, the University has excellent facilities: the labs and equipment here are first class.

The core subject of my study was about the effect of the drug simvastatin – an inhibitor of cholesterol – on advanced glycation, the main culprit in diabetes. Having completed my PhD, I am now working at the University as an associate lecturer supporting first year healthcare science students.

I have always wanted to work in academic and research fields. It is an exciting job with many opportunities to learn new skills. Next I would like to work as a postdoctoral researcher in biomedical science.

Working as a team is very enjoyable especially when it comes to assisting students and programme leaders. My preference is to stay in the training field at the University. Teaching is something I am passionate about. I enjoy teaching students and I learn from them everyday
