Rachid Tazi-AhniniNAAF BiographyRachid Tazi-Ahnini, Ph.D.Originally from Morocco, Dr. Rachid Tazi-Ahnini studied for his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in molecular and cellular biology at the Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France from 1990-93.This was followed by a year at the laboratories of the Institut National pour la Recherche Medicale to prepare for the "diplôme des études approfondies" (DEA).During this period, he undertook work on haemodynamic and functional changes in the kidney in experimental diabetes under the supervision of Dr. Jean-Pierre Girolami.In 1994, he began PhD studies in human genetics at the laboratories of the Centre Nationale de Recherche Scientifique, Toulouse, under the supervision of Drs.Dr. Tazi-Ahnini moved to Britain for a postdoctoral appointment in October 1997.Because of his background in MHC structure, evolution and genetics, he subsequently focused most of his work on the genetics of the MHC in psoriasis and alopecia areata.In his first year as a postdoctoral scientist, Dr. Tazi-Ahnini identified the first genetic association of alopecia areata with a polymorphism in the MX-1 gene on Chromosome 21. (In Down's syndrome, long associated with an increased incidence of alopecia areata, there is also a major abnormality located on Chromosome 21.) In the same year, he also identified the first genetic association between polymorphisms in the corneodesmosin MHC S gene with alopecia areata and psoriasis.In his second year as a postdoctoral scientist, Dr. Tazi-Ahnini identified a novel gene in the MHC epidermal gene cluster.He showed that this gene was expressed in skin and is currently investigating its role in alopecia areata. As a result of Dr. Tazi-Ahnini's exceptional research output and commitment to dermatology research, the Vice Chancellor approved the creation of a new molecular dermatology Lectureship post.Dr. Tazi-Ahnini was appointed to this post in open competition in December 1998.The University of Sheffield has also allocated further laboratory space in order to allow the expansion of Dr. Tazi-Ahnini's alopecia areata research.This level of commitment by the University is only given to the very top researchers. For his work on psoriasis, Dr. Tazi-Ahnini received a Young Investigator Award attributed by the scientific committee of the 4th World Congress on Inflammation in Paris in 1999.He was also awarded an Albert M. Kligman Fellowship from the Society for Investigative Dermatology to present a study on Chromosome 21 genetics in alopecia areata in Chicago, IL, in May 2000.In January 2000, he was promoted by the University of Sheffield to the post of lecturer in genetic dermatology to develop genetic studies of alopecia areata.
