Honorary Senior Research Fellow, Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London

Research is all about asking the right question and Sudan is all about survival. I trained as a dentist and a scientist in London then made my way home to Sudan. I founded a small dental surgery in the center of Khartoum, which grew to become a large hospital serving thousands of people. In our spare time we work on research questions emanating from our own environment some of which had global impact. Our research has provided answers about the effects of malnutrition on tooth formation and described skeletal development in children from East Africa. We also investigate how East African children develop under high stress environments. Little is known about human biology in Sudan despite the large diversity and we hope to provide some data
