A native of Endicott, N.Y., Ahmed attended Binghamton University, where he earned degrees in biochemistry and mathematics.
He will serve his fellowship in the laboratory of Christine Seidman, MD, professor of genetics and medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the Cardiovascular Genetics Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston.
“I am honored that Dr. Seidman is interested in nurturing my curiosity and to have the support of HHMI,” said Ahmed, who hopes to pursue a career in academic medicine as a physician-scientist.
“I am very excited to have been given this opportunity to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of hereditary cardiomyopathies.”
