Research Fellow, UCL School of Pharmacy
3D printing for personalized medications
Atheer Awad is a research fellow at the University College London (UCL) performing her research in both the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. She earned her PhD and master’s in pharmaceutics and drug design from UCL, and her bachelor’s in pharmacy from Applied Science University, Jordan. Her current research at UCL involves 3D printing of personalized medications allowing patients to have their precise needs met rather than be served through generic dosages of the active pharmaceutical ingredient and application methods of the medications that may not be suitable for them. The new technology can also have added features such as accessibility adjustments that allow the visually impaired better understanding and perception of what they are putting into their bodies.
