Ahmed Edris

MSc, PhD

Researcher in Genetic Epidemiology

Ahmed completed his undergraduate degree in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Alexandria University and his MSc in Clinical Pharmacy at the Queen’s University Belfast. He obtained a European Respiratory Society long term research fellowship, and graduated from Ghent University with a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences. He joined Oxford Population Health in 2022.  

Ahmed focuses on the genetic epidemiology of common complex-trait diseases. He aims to leverage large clinical and genetic datasets to understand complex diseases, to inform precision medicine approaches to prevention and treatment. Ahmed’s research involves several techniques in genetic epidemiology including genome-wide, phenome-wide and multi-omics studies. 

He works as a researcher in genetic epidemiology in the China Kadoorie Biobank Group, on a variety of projects including multi-trait genome-wide association studies.
