 Research 

Mr Sarakbi has completed a period of research at the University of London and his thesis was titled: (The potential role of steroid sulfatase (STS) and organic anion transporter B (OATPB) in predicting clinical outcome in breast cancer). During this period of research he was also involved in other projects such as examining the potential clinical applications of mammary ductoscopy, and the potential role of proteomic profiling in early detection of breast cancer and guiding risk reducing strategies. He also investigated the role of diet in developing breast cancer. His work on these subjects has generated 23 publications in leading medical journals. He presented his work at various national and international meetings. 
Mr Sarakbi was awarded the degree Master of Surgery in Dec 2009. 
 
He was also involved the development of microbubbles at Maidstone and Tunbridge wells NHS trust. He presented the data on Ultrasound guided needle biopsy of the sentinel lymph Node (SLN) identified by intradermal injection of microbubbles in patients with invasive breast cancer at the national BASO (British Association of Surgical Oncology) meeting 2011. 
 
He is currently a member of the IMPORT (Intensity Modulated partial organ radiotherapy in Breast Cancer) trial management group. This is one of the largest trials in breast Radiotherapy in the UK.
