Mohammed Hankir

Lead Scientist

I studied basic neuroscience at Leeds and UCL before undertaking a PhD at Imperial College.

During my doctoral studies, I developed an interest in studying the central regulation of energy and glucose homeostasis using in vivo imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET).

I subsequently held brief post-doctoral positions at the University of Oxford and MRC London Institute of Science before a lengthier stay at the BMBF- and DFG-funded obesity research centres in Leipzig University, Germany.

I am currently Lead Scientist at the Department of Experimental Surgery situated at the University of Wuerzburg where I am working on the mechanisms of weight loss after gastric bypass surgery using animal models.
