Specialist Registrar in Clinical Genetics

Guys and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation trust


Tazeen trained in Paediatric medicine and Clinical Genetics in London. She currently works at Guys and St Thomas’s NHS foundation trust. She met a patient with KBG syndrome early on in her training and this sparked the desire to learn more about the condition. She has a complementary analysis project through the DDD study in the UK to further research patients with KBG syndrome. She continues to work in rare disease and regularly collaborates with clinicians to better understand the condition. Tazeen feels that patient engagement is the key to making scientific and clinical research accessible and practical for families. She and Dr Karen Low arranged the first KBG syndrome family day in the UK which was a huge success!
