“Scientific discovery requires imagination. To push the boundaries of understanding, you have to think “outside the box”, you have to be creative. Which sounds obvious, but then I knew that she was creative. The eminent professor is also “Nazneen”, a sultry singer/songwriter.” (Alexander Gilmour) - Financial Times
London based singer-songwriter and internationally renowned scientist Nazneen Rahman is releasing her new album, ‘Answers No Questions,’ with the leading single, ‘Everything Must Change,’ due for official release on the 28th of April 2017.

Alongside her newly found music following, Nazneen Rahman continues in her inspiring roles at the Institute of Cancer Research and The Royal Marsden Hospital making scientific discoveries, helping patients, and delivering lectures across the world.
