Dr Ahmed Al-Naher from the Institute of Translational Medicine has been named Research Student of the Year at the 2018 North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards.
The awards celebrate success and reward achievements for work being undertaken across the region in relation to clinical research and innovation that impact and improve patient care.
Ahmed won for his PhD work to develop personalised kidney function monitoring guidelines, based on the clinical symptoms of individual patients with heart failure. He was also recognised for coordinating working partnerships with patients, NHS services and industry to collaborate within the project.
The Clinical Research Fellow and 3rd year PhD student was nominated for the prize by his supervisor, Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed.
Commenting on his win, Ahmed said: “I am thrilled and honoured to have received this award. My hope is that this achievement can help raise awareness for the work we are doing to help patients across the UK with heart failure and raise support for the people who need it most.”

Ahmed is a well-deserved winner.”
The award winners were announced at a ceremony held at Preston North End Football Club on 8 March 2018.
