Ph.D, Skeletal muscle biologist

Dr. Maisha is a skeletal muscle biologist and received her Doctor of Philosophy degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She is currently a Research Fellow at Karolinska Institute, Sweden.

She is supporting Be the Peace - Be the Hope by developing workshops that integrate science into everyday lives of underprivileged and refugee children. She hopes to empower these children with science to explore and nurture their talents. The focal points of these workshops are to develop interest, knowledge, hope, resilience and self- reliance. The Creative Science curriculum/program will be integrated with the arts to introduce science in a fun manner to children.

Her workshops will be implemented for children including but not limited to Houston, Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, and villages of Bangladesh to empower them with education and teach them the importance of it. She strongly believes that every child has a right to good quality education regardless of race, language, financial background and gender.
