Fatima Al Hannan, BSc in Biomedical sciences (1st Class Honors), (MSc- ongoing), Laboratory Technician. She graduated from University of Qatar with BSc degree (2007). Following graduation, she worked as a medical technologist in Salmanyia Medical Complex clinical laboratories, Bahrain. She then joined RCSI Bahrain as a Laboratory technician in 2008. Her research interests are in the area of molecular genetics and proteomics and specifically the investigation on the molecular basis of human disorders. She was awarded QNRF Grant and Medical Research Committee Grant (HMC- Qatar) for her project “Molecular Characterization and prenatal diagnosis of β-thalassemia Mutations in Qatari Population” (2007) and RCSI- Bahrain Research committee grant for the study of the Molecular Pathogenesis of T2DM in Bahrain (2009). She is now doing her MSc (by research) in a collaborative study between RCSI Bahrain and Dublin. She is investigating the role of adiponectin serum level and its genetic variation in the pathogenesis of T2DM and the metabolic syndrome in Bahrain.
