Dr Hazim Ghani


Lecturer, Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences


I completed all my degrees from Imperial College London, UK including BSc Biology (2007-2010), MSc Immunology (2010-2011) and PhD Immunology (2012-2016). During my PhD, I worked with Professor Julian Dyson, Transplantation Biology group with particular focus on the "Optimisation of T cell receptors using in vivo recombination and selection".

I began my position as a lecturer for the Biomedical Science programme at the PAPRSB IHS in May 2017. I am involved in multiple research projects including stingless bee honey, local herbal plants, colorectal cancer and more recently, a COVID-19 serology study.
