Dr Taher Omari
Women’s & Children’s Hospital
Taher was inspired by watching Harry Butler, and decided he wanted to be a biologist. His pathway took a few unexpected turns along the way and instead of studying animals; he ended up studying human physiology. The focus of his research on relfux disease is not over-indulgent adults, but chronic reflux in babies and children. Studying reflux disease in tiny babies is no easy task and over the years He has invented new ways of measuring reflux by designing and building incredibly small devices that are suitable for babies.
