Dr. Arman Rahman

Senior Council Member

Dr. Arman Rahman is an MD, Ph.D. He is an assistant professor at the University College Dublin (UCD) School of Medicine and in charge of Precision Oncology Ireland’s (POI) Tissue Imaging Platform. After finishing his Ph.D. in Immunology from Umea University, Sweden, Dr. Rahman left his clinical practice and became a full-time academic researcher by joining his first postdoctoral fellowship training at DCU, Ireland in 2008. After a brief period of working in the field of antibody engineering in Dublin and Cambridge, Dr. Rahman concentrated on cancer biomarker development and validation using tissue-based detection techniques.

Dr. Rahman’s expertise is in the area of antibody validation, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, digital pathology, and image analysis. For his contribution to developing the POI’s Tissue Imaging Platform, Dr. Rahman has been awarded the ‘Senior Researcher of the Year 2020’ by the Irish Cancer Society.

A passionate advocate of engaging minority communities in cancer research, he has played a key role in organizing The Invisible Spectrum (www.precisiononcology.ie/engagement/theinvisiblespectrum/) for the past two years. Dr Rahman won a UCD 2020 Values in Action (VIA) award for his work debunking misinformation about Covid-19 among his community in Ireland and internationally during the pandemic.
