About me

I am an Associate Professor of Pharmaceutics at Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan, Faculty of Pharmacy. I have a BS in Pharmacy from the University of Jordan, and a PhD in Biopharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Illinois at Chicago. My primary research focus is Nanomedicine, specifically developing nanoparticle systems to improve the biopharmaceutical properties and targeting efficacy of anti-cancer drugs. I am also interested in exploring plant polyphenols as a renewable source of nanomaterials for biomedical applications. I joined AGYA to get more involved in interdisciplinary collaborative projects related to healthcare and education, as well as science policy and research ethics.
