Research Associate,  Faculty of Medicine

Who inspires you?

My father - Professor Murtadha Bidmos. He came from a village called Ayete in rural South-West Nigeria, enrolled himself to a primary school as a teenager, and went on to become a Fulbright Scholar who has written books used in lectures at Harvard University and in international conferences. My father battled against the odds to raise children that have all become successful in their respective fields. I’m inspired by his ability to keep on going when all the roads seemed blocked or led to nowhere.

What led you to working at Imperial?

A desire to advance my research skills and budding academic career in a first-class environment and in the midst of world-renowned scientists.

What quote inspires you?

“What has reached you was never meant to miss you, and what has missed you was never meant to reach you” - Prophet Muhammad.

If you could improve one thing at Imperial, what would it be?

The support for postdoctoral staff.
