Dr Amal Ali Elkordy is a Reader in Pharmaceutics in the Department of Pharmacy, Health and Well-being.
Her area of research interest is the stabilisation of protein formulations (using spray drying, freeze drying and crystallisation technology) and their delivery via oral and pulmonary routes. Her more recent work is concerned with the enhancement of poorly water soluble drugs, resulting in the award of three prizes at the British Pharmaceutical Conference 2008 and at the British Pharmaceutical Students' Association Annual Conference 2010 and 2012.
She also has research interests in:
Gene therapeutics (awarded national recognition from the College of Mental Health Pharmacists, 2010)
Liquisolid tablet dosage forms to enhance and to sustain the release of drugs
Liposomal drug delivery and preparation of drug eluting stents for the treatment of restenosis
Recent Projects/Current Work
Preparation and characterisation of stable protein formulations This project is based on the application of calorimetry to study the stability of prepared protein formulations pre- and post-storage.
Development of different tablet dosage forms to enhance and to sustain the dissolution of drugs This project is based on formulation of liquisolid and fast disintegrating tablets containing model hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs.
Formulation of gene therapeutics This project is proposed to compare and contrast the properties of different non-viral vectors with the aim to formulate stable and effective gene therapeutic.
