Dr. Anwar holds a doctoral degree in Biological and Biomedical Sciences (2021) on a thesis titled “Analyses of EGFR Signaling Pathway; Interplay with human papillomavirus, miRNAs, and inflammatory biomarkers in a high-risk oral cancer population” from Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan. Before that, she completed her Masters from NUST, Islamabad, with majors in HealthCare Biotechnology. Her PhD work is a distinctive blend of Epidemiological and Molecular studies of Oral Cancer. During her PhD, she was awarded the research scholarship award of HEC for Queensland Institute Medical Research Beghofer (QIMRB), Brisbane, Australia. She was also the recipient of the Aga Khan University University Research Council Grant worth the US $20,000. During her Masters, she was in the first group in NUST to develop a primary Breast Cancer Cell line. She is also a Volunteer Research Associate in the Cambridge Centre of Innovation Development (CamCID), London, United Kingdom. Her ardent areas of interest are exploring the molecular mechanism of cancers, understanding the role of miRNAs along with palliative care, and using biomedical sciences for better therapeutic insight into cancers.
