RESEARCH AREAS / INTERESTS
- Formulation Science;
- Controlled drug delivery system, Drug Targeting;
RESEARCH EXPERIENCE 1. – Developed and characterized controlled release drug delivery system consisting of hydrogels, which were capable to extend delivery of model drug acyclovir at predictable and reproducible rate over an extended period of time. Hydrogels have been characterized via fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Acute oral toxicity study was conducted according to “Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)” guidelines. Pharmacokinetic evaluation was done by using sensitive and simple reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method. 2. – Developed a stable cosmetic emulsion of lactic acid and conducted its in-vitro characterization and in-vivo evaluation on human volunteers. Worked with sophisticated instruments for the measurement of skin parameters which includes Mexameter, Corneometer, Cutometer, Sebumeter, Skin pH-meter, Tewameter and Rheometer. 3. – Supervised research projects for final year students to enhance their analytical skills. These projects were degree requirement by pharmacy council of Pakistan.
