Dr. Parveen Khan

Dr Parveen Khan holds a BSc. (joint honours) in Applied Science (Biology and Chemistry) from the University of Sheffield and a PhD in Analytical Science from the University of Manchester. Dr Khan undertook a period of postdoctoral training at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research (the research arm of the world famous Christie NHS Foundation Trust). She collaborated with scientists and clinicians at the Christie Hospital, other hospitals and universities to develop appropriate analytical methodology to enable the isolation and detection of low level, novel, natural product chemotherapeutic agents from the plasma samples of patients taking part in Phase I clinical trials. Pharmacokinetic analysis of the samples enabled the collaborating clinicians to determine the safe and effective therapeutic management of the individual patient. Following 7 years in research, Dr Khan embarked on her career as a Medical Writer in 2001 working with a prestigious Medical Education/Communications agency based in Manchester. As a Medical Writer she developed and edited primary papers and review articles for publication in scientific journals, as well as developing and editing monographs, proceedings, abstracts, posters and slide kits in a wide range of therapy areas. This role provided valuable experience in editing manuscripts authored by both non-native and native English speakers from across the globe. The remit was always to ensure that all manuscripts were completely error free, unambiguous and written in plain English to ensure accessibility to a global audience once published. Dr Khan has a diverse background with extensive experience of writing, editing, reviewing and proofreading a wide range of content of a scientific/medical nature (print and digital media) while being employed within the academic, government, pharmaceutical and education industries. Areas of expertise: Analytical methodology, pharmacokinetics, cancer research, anaesthesia, diabetes, respiratory medicine, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, surgery, obesity, overactive bladder and patient medical education.
