Professor Muneer completed his surgical training in Manchester, Oxford and London. He has also received funding to undertake fellowships to the University of Paris, University of Bern and MD Anderson, Texas as well as the NKI in Amsterdam. He has held a number of national roles including Chair BAUS Section of Andrology and Genitourethral Surgery, President British Society for Sexual Medicine and is past Honorary Secretary British Association of Urological Surgeons. He is an Executive Committee member for the European Society for Sexual Medicine. 

He has received a number of awards including the Keith Yeates Gold Medal for the FRCS(Urol) which is awarded by the intercollegiate board and the Harold Hopkins Golden Telescope Award presented by the British Association of Urological Surgeons to consultants for their contribution to urology within the first 10 years of a consultant appointment. Currently he is the only person to have received both accolades as a trainee and a consultant. 

Research Summary

Professor Muneer is the urology clinical lead at UCLH and completed his MD at the Wolfson Institute of Biomedical Research, UCL where he investigated the role of ischaemia and smooth muscle dysfunction. This has led to a change in the management of ischaemic priapism with UCLH leading on the use of acute penile prosthesis insertion for refractory cases - a practice now incorporated into international guidelines. Following on from this, he developed a penile cancer tissue biobank at UCL which has led to a collaboration with the UCL Cancer Institute to perform the first whole exome sequencing for penile cancer. Currently he is the clinical lead and PI for the MRI-PET trial for staging inguinal nodes in penile cancer which has now recruited the largest number of patients for a penile cancer trial and the Chief Investigator for the NIHR funded VELRAD trial in penile cancer. There is ongoing work to develop in vitro models to investigate novel targeted therapies which will form the basis for a translational arm to the penile cancer research using cell lines and xenograft models. The penile cancer team are also investigating the life cycle of low risk HPV and continue to investigate novel imaging techniques for the management of clinically impalpable disease. 

As part of the European Reference Network, the UCLH penile cancer unit is now part of eUROGEN which is a collaborative work stream with other centres of excellence throughout Europe and Professor Muneer is the research lead for the penile cancer work stream.
