Afzal Mohammed's Biography

Afzal Mohammed, Senior Lecturer, Aston University

Dr Afzal Mohammed is a Pharmacist who read for his PhD in 2005 which was followed by a Post Doctoral position working on the development of freeze dried subunit vaccines for the treatment of tuberculosis. In October 2007 he was appointed as a Lecturer followed by his current position as a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics from 2011 at Aston University. His research interests include formulation development of orally disintegrating tablets by direct compression and freeze drying, formulation of oral liquid nanomedicines and understanding the genomic signature of drug delivery systems using microarrays. His research group has published extensively in various international journals and work from his laboratory has resulted in the filing of two patents.   Dr Mohammed has published 27 research articles and over 60 abstracts at national and international conferences. He has been successful in attracting research income from government bodies and pharmaceutical industries.

The overarching aim of my presentation will be to investigate genomic changes of transporter genes when studied as a singular system during the process of drug permeation. My presentation will comprise of two sections: the first section will focus on formulation development of solid dispersions to enhance drug solubility and the second section will be dedicated to understanding transcriptomic changes of drug transporters during permeability studies. The conclusion of my presentation will describe the role of pharmaceutical formulation and excipients in drug transport and how studies based on systems biology can help formulation scientists towards improved drug delivery and targeting.
