CERiA’s research efforts focus on the key affected and marginalized populations and transcend clinical, translational as well as public health research.

She was honoured at the Advance Australia Awards as the first recipient of the Advance Global Award in the category of Alumni in 2012 and received the Australian Education Achievement Award in the same year. She was recently named one of the Top 20 most influential Muslim women scientists by Muslim-Science.Com and has been featured in both The Lancet and Science.
