Pain is difficult to diagnose and treat in children. Competing theories claim that children do not experience pain as adults do; or rather that children are unable to communicate their pain. Most importantly; pain is misunderstood in children and therefore difficult to appropriately treat. Current research indicates that formerly used common treatments are no longer safe for use in children.

In one of my past projects, we compared Oral Morphine versus Ibuprofen for at home pain control in children following orthopedic surgery. We are seeking to better manage pain as effectively as possible.

My past medical training as an International Medical Graduate (IMG) allows me to apply my talents to my work in the development and management of clinical projects. I am extremely passionate about my ability to advance patient care through the many new and exciting research projects I am engaged in.

I enjoy working with the enthusiastic and brave young patients I recruit into these studies (much of my work is focused on paediatrics). Without these inspiring young individuals, we are unable to test novel new theories today to make the great scientific advances of tomorrow.

I am actively seeking professional opportunities in the biotechnology and clinical research industries. I am willing to get my hands dirty with hard work on the ground floor to demonstrate my abilities.
