As part of the ENT Surgery group at the BHI, Gohar is involved in several projects investigating possible mechanisms of immune evasion by pathogenic bacteria in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) disease. Gohar completed her PhD at the University of Adelaide, Australia, on the relationship between S. aureus biofilm properties/virulence factors, inflammation and disease severity in CRS. Gohar received her Master of Science in Cell Biotechnology from the University of Malaya in Malaysia in 2016. During her MSc she worked on the mechanism of apoptosis induction in head and neck squamous carcinoma cell lines in response to active compounds in natural products. She also obtained her BSc in Cell & Molecular Biology from Tehran University in Iran. Gohar’s research interests include inflammatory disease, cancer cell biology and cancer immunology.
