University Associate Professor (Honorary Consultant)
Wasim Khan is a University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon. He has a research interest in stem cell sources, characterisation, differentiation and clinical applications. His clinical interest is in Knee injuries and disease, especially cartilage and meniscal defects. He aims to identify better ways of treating cartilage and meniscal lesions in the knee and developing cell-based treatments.
Wasim was awarded a MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship to complete his PhD looking at chondrogenesis in MSCs under the supervision of Professor Tim Hardingham at the University of Manchester. He was awarded the Syme Medal by the Royal College of Surgeons. Wasim then completed an Orthopaedic Academic Clinical Training programme at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and University College London, where he was a Lecturer from 2010-14 under the supervision of Professor David Marsh and Professor Tim Briggs. Wasim has completed national (Bristol and Cardiff) and international (USA, Europe and Australia) clinical and research fellowships. He has authored over 300 papers, 50 chapters and 5 books.
