Hasan Raza Mohammad

MRCS MRes (Dist) MBChB


Clinical Research Fellow in Orthopaedics

  • DPhil student in Musculoskeletal Sciences
  • Clinical Research Fellow to Professor Murray

Hasan completed his undergraduate medical training at The University of Manchester in 2015. During his undergraduate studies he was awarded the prize for most outstanding academic research from his medical epidemiology work.  

He undertook an MRes in Tissue Engineering under the Leo Pharma scholarship, designing tissue engineered intervertebral disc replacements for low back pain. His work involved differentiating bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells  into nucleus pulposus cells, to generate native disc extracellular matrix. A combination of molecular analysis and structural analysis was used to characterise the matrix.  The results were compared to degenerate nucleus pulposus matrix and healthy cadaveric tissue. He graduated with Distinction for this work and won national surgical prizes for his contributions.    

Hasan subsequently completed the Academic Foundation Programme during which he published several Orthopaedic papers. He was awarded the prestigious University of Oxford’s Henni Mester Scholarship to undertake a DPhil in Musculoskeletal Sciences investigating the optimisation of the Oxford Knee with Professor David Murray.
