A Muslim neuroscience graduate from Blackburn has had her research article published in a prestigious international academic journal.

University of Central Lancashire graduate Farheen Rokad, 22, from Blackburn was named as the main author on a research published in the Journal for Alzheimer’s Disease.

The former pupil of Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School worked with three universities – Birmingham, Cardiff and Florida on a piece of research into brain tissue damage and its repercussions on gum disease during an internship at UCLan’s school of dentistry.

She said told the Lancashire Telegraph: “To see my work published in such a prestigious journal while I was still an undergraduate student is a fantastic reward and motivates me to excel to my full potential.”

Dr Sim Singhrao, a senior research fellow supervised Farheen in her internship.

She said: “This sets Farheen onto an excellent start, either for postgraduate research or in finding employment.”

Farheen was one of more than 4,000 students to graduate this month.
