I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery from Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University in Saudi Arabia (2017) and joined the College of Medicine as a teaching assistant. After that, I completed my master’s degree in Cell &Gene Therapy at UCL (2020), where I explored the role of cellular senescence as a potential mediator of chronic myeloid leukaemia treatment resistance. Currently, I'm a PhD student at Mansour group (funded by the Saudi Cultural Bureau).


My interests include reading, writing, and teaching Arabic poetry, and occasionally practising MMA. You can find me on Twitter @Ali_F_Alhawaj

Research Summary

My research focuses on acute myeloid leukaemia resistance mechanisms. I’m utilizing clinical samples to examine the genomic and transcriptomic aberrations in coding & non-coding genome of patients with primary chemoresistant AML (induction failure), and further follow-up with functional studies.
