Rohma Ghani is a Clinical Research Fellow in the Division of Integrative Systems Medicine and Digestive Disease at Imperial College London. She is also an Honorary Specialty Registrar in Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. She is currently studying for a PhD at Imperial College (funded by the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC)).
She is interested in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the role of the microbiome and faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in patients colonised with multidrug-resistant organisms who are at higher risk from invasive disease and sepsis.
