Dr Hamied Haroon works as a research scientist at the University of Manchester where he gained his PhD in 2005 in biomedical magnetic resonance imaging. When Hamied became a member of staff he was shocked when all the support available to him as a disabled student suddenly disappeared.

He was involved in establishing the University’s Disabled Staff Network in 2007 and was elected its first chair. The network’s first proud success was to achieve a dedicated university support service for disabled staff.
