Mr Muneer underwent clinical training centred in Manchester, Oxford and London. He has also undertaken further visiting fellowships at the University of Paris, University of Bern and MD Anderson in Texas. He has a number of national roles including Chair BAUS Section of Andrology and Genitourethral Surgery, President British Society Sexual Medicine and is the current British Association of Urological Surgeons Honorary Secretary.

Research Summary

Mr Muneer completed an MD at the Wolfson Institute of Biomedical Research, UCL investigating 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. Following on from this his focus has been on developing 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. There is now 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. 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 Mr Muneer is the research lead for the penile cancer work stream.
