In 2001, Professor Bashiri was designated the head of the Recurrent Miscarriage Clinic at Soroka, for which he established a unique database containing information from over 1000 patients experiencing Recurrent Pregnancy Loss. In 2012, he was granted the Edmond J. Safra Award for Excellence in recognition of his high achievement in medicine and academics and his social contributions.

In addition to his clinical work, Professor Bashiri serves as the coordinator of the Obstetrics and Gynecology clerkship for 5th year medical students, the chair of the Research Project Committee, and the chair of the final OBGYN examination committee at Ben Gurion University.  Since 2015, he has served as the Chair of the Academic Committee of the ISEF.

Professor Bashiri has been invited to give over 100 lectures and presentations at important national and international conferences. In 2016, he established the first World Conference on RPL.  Understanding that 50% of the etiology of RPL is still unknown, Professor Bashiri saw this conference as a key step in promoting international collaboration to advance knowledge in this area and, ultimately, to find a cure for RPL. In addition to leading and organizing the third World Conference on RPL in 2018, Professor Bashiri is currently working on several research studies investigating the role of Ig-Fc potency, Noxaparin effects on birth rate, uterine anatomic abnormalities, pregnancy loss and chromosomal aberration in women with RPL and physical activity and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss.
