Dr. Ibrahim Khot was appointed as Assistant Professor in Biochemistry within the School of Chemistry and Biosciences in 2023. Prior to this Ibrahim was a lecturer at the University of Leeds and completed his Postdoctoral Research Fellowship within the Schools of Medicine and Physics & Astronomy at the University of Leeds and his research was funded by Leeds NIHR BRC, UKRI EPSRC, Wellcome Trust, The Royal Society and Bowel Cancer UK.In 2013, he completed a BSc with First Class honours in Biomedical Sciences and in 2014, completed an MSc with Distinction in Cancer Pharmacology, both from the University of Bradford. He then undertook his doctoral studies at the University of Leeds, earning a PhD in Medicine and Biology in 2019.Ibrahim’s research focus is pre-clinical evaluation and clinical translational of novel cancer technologies, focussing on the development of cutting-edge patient-derived cancer organoids to study the impact of biofilms in bowel cancers and to develop personalised treatments. His research experience also extends to developing multimodal nanoparticles to fluorescently image and deliver photodynamic therapy to treat bowel cancers. This is in conjunction with the use of complex in vitro cell models of cancer, specifically three-dimensional cell cultures and state-of-the-art patient-derived organoids. Ongoing multi-collaborative research includes the development of high-throughput microfluidic platforms for therapeutic screening applications and miniature implantable LED devices to deliver metronomic photodynamic therapies. Through his research career, Ibrahim has developed multiple academic and industrial collaborators on different projects.Outputs from Ibrahim’s research includes multiple high impact publications, conference presentations, grant funding and a patent on wireless LED technologies.For academic appointments, Ibrahim has lectured on different undergraduate and postgraduate biology and medicine programmes and serves as primary supervisor to a cohort of postgraduate research students including MD, PhD, MRes, MSc and BSc students. He also serves as internal and external university examiner for doctoral transfer and final thesis examinations.
