More about Kinana
My name is Kinana and I originally come from Syria. I graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy at Damascus University with the aim of becoming a specialist in Pharmaceutical Analysis in the future. I am currently undertaking my PhD in Chemistry at NTU, where I am exploring the potentials of superparamagnetic iron oxide nano-rods towards the treatment of glioblastoma brain tumors.
NTU really stood out to me from the beginning, and I was offered two generous awards. Firstly, I had a waiver from the tuition fee of both my postgraduate degree and PhD, and I was also fortunate to secure bench and publication fees support from the University.
NTU is a great place to study, the labs are equipped with the latest technology and there are a wide variety of departments and experts to collaborate with. Also, NTU provides specialist support to ensure everybody gets the most out of student life, whether that is through mental health and wellbeing support or the chance to interact with a wide variety of people from different cultures.
How has your PhD benefitted you?
Throughout my PhD journey, I have conducted detailed research, which has enabled me to gain critical thinking expertise and enhance my analytical and communication skills. I will be able to apply everything I have learnt here in a global context and once I have completed my PhD, I will carry on working as a researcher in nanomaterials.
