B.Sc. Biomedical Science, M.Sc. Translational Neuroscience, Ph.D. Molecular Neuroscience & Neurophysiology

Osman is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sheffield studying the impact of cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis) on neurovascular function in vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease using pre-clinical models and neuroimaging techniques. He is based in the Department of Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease in the Faculty of Medicine at Sheffield.

Osman graduated with a B.Sc. with honors in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Sheffield, where he specialized in Neuroscience.

He went on to complete a Master's of Science (M.Sc.) in Translational Neuroscience (in SITraN) specializing in molecular neuroscience of motor-neuron disease (2016).

He further went on to complete a Ph.D. in Neurovascular Neuroscience (2020) studying neurovascular function in preclinical models of atherosclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. His Ph.D. work formed the basis of his current postdoctoral work which is funded by a British Heart Foundation grant.

He currently writes articles on neuroscience topics such as Multiple Sclerosis, Huntington's Disease, Autism, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's disease, in addition to a wide variety of other biomedical disciplines for News-Medical.
