Zaed Z R Hamady MBChB, PGDip, PhD, MRCS, FRCS (Eng)

I qualified in Medicine with an MBChB from the University of Baghdad in 1996 and completed my internship training in Baghdad Medical City Teaching hospitals. Following that I moved to the UK and finished my basic surgical training in Yorkshire. During this period I obtained the surgical membership of the three UK Royal Colleges. I started my clinical research training in Leeds University where I was awarded a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellowship in 2005 and a Medical Research Council Training Fellowship in 2006 to carry out research on genetic engineering of the human gut bacterium to produce a functional human protein for the treatment of bowel disorders. The research period was productive and having published and presented widely. My research project was the runner up for the Times Higher Education (THE) award in 2007. I was awarded a PhD in 2009 and Hunterian Professorship from the RCS (Eng.) in 2011. During the research period I received training in kidney and liver transplant. I have been appointed as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Leeds University to continue my academic and clinical training in HPB and transplant surgery. I have obtained a firm grounding in HPB benign and cancer surgical practice as well as liver transplant surgery.

My current research interest is to identify prognostic factors associated with major liver resection and find intervention to improve outcome after such a major surgery. I aim to establish a liver and pancreatic research theme and link it to my clinical practice. The MRC clinical fellowship and the PhD has enabled the foundations of this aim to be set, and to be built upon throughout my subsequent career, allowing me to progress to lead clinically and academically in my field of interest.

I am actively peer reviewing for EJSO (European Journal of Surgical Oncology), ASO (Annals of Surgical Oncology) and the BJS (British Journal of Surgery). As well I review for BMC gastroenterology and the Cochrane collaboration.

During my academic training, I developed interest in publication integrity and ethics. The health research diploma has enriched this enthusiasm and widened my horizon to improve publication rules and laws. I look forward to be active member of the PIE organisation and establish an ethical publishing environment.
