I received my PhD from Rutgers University, working in the Laboratory for Drug Delivery. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and a master’s degree in Pharmaceutics fro the College of Pharmacy, University of Baghdad, Iraq. Prior to joining Professor Michniak-Kohn’s group, I worked as an associate professor of Pharmaceutics at the University of Baghdad teaching Physical Pharmacy courses. My research at LDD focuses on the transdermal delivery of drugs for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. In particular, I am developing transdermal patches based on pressure-sensitive adhesives to deliver a drug for Alzheimers’s disease. In addition, exploring the feasibility of lipid nanoparticles for the transdermal delivery of drugs.
