Ahsan is currently a CRUK Clinician Scientist. His group looks at the bidirectional crosstalk of fibroblasts with immune cells, as well as developing translational methods to image these in vivo. This includes both an optical high-resolution method looking at fibroblast activity and whole-body approaches for activated fibroblast presence.

Ahsan previously undertook a PhD in optical molecular imaging and have been involved in several of the first-in-human imaging studies. Outside of work, he excels in the fields of gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soya-free and nut-free baking and enjoys cycling.
