Thanks to our guest speaker Prof Asif Ahmed 20 Feb 2023
Those gathered at the annual PharmaMedic Consultancy’s social event on 16 February were treated to an engaging presentation by guest speaker Prof Asif Ahmed.
Prof Asif Ahmed – CEO of MirZyme Therapeutics – is known for his work on overcoming preeclampsia through the development of two protective pathways. His talk was entitled, “Where I came from, Where I’m going. Against all the odds” He explained his journey as a scientist in this field. In his typically self-effacing manner, he stressed the importance of the many people who had mentored him in his career and who had supported his vision to establish the Aston Medical School in Birmingham and his determination to overcome preeclampsia. He spoke of how people had been generous with their time and expertise over the years and how he wanted to follow this example to help others succeed, giving an uplifting message to the gathered audience.
Many thanks to Prof Ahmed for his lively and informative presentation from the PharmaMedic team.
