Nurul Abdul Samad


An enthusiastic, adaptable, and fast learner with a strong drive and dedication to the discovery of evidence-based medicine research for cardiovascular diseases. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Malaya, one of the premier universities in Malaysia. I then, gained years of experience as a cardiac device therapy specialist through numerous collaborations between cardiologists and the medical industry.

Currently, I'm working with Dr Maria Paton and Dr Klaus Witte, to study how new echocardiographic measurements could potentially predict left ventricular remodelling in people with pacemaker by undertaking Ph.D. research at the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine (LICAMM).

The University of Leeds is one of the prestigious Russel Group's world-class universities in the United Kingdom. I am very passionate about clinical research and very hopeful to subsequently contribute novel findings to the scientific research world.
