Dr. Almoazen earned a B.S. in Pharmacy from Damascus University in Syria, and Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Long Island University in New York. Dr. Almoazen holds two appointments as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences and in Clinical Pharmacy at the University of Tennessee. His research interests focus on designing novel pediatric drug delivery systems, design microemulsions and nanoemulsions for the transdermal delivery of ions (I, Zn, Cu, Se, Mn, Cr), enhance dissolution rate, solubility, stability, permeability of poorly soluble drugs and study the influence of ions on the stability of nanosuspensions.
Focus Areas: Pediatric Formulations | Nanotechnology Transdermal Delivery of Ions | Intrinsic Dissolution Rate, Solubility and Permeability | Stability of Nanosuspensions
Skills and Expertise: Design and Evaluate Pediatric Dosage Forms | Enhance Solubility and Dissolution Rate of Poorly Soluble Drugs | Enhance Stability of Nanosuspensions | Design Microemulsions and Nanoemulsions for the Transdermal Delivery of Ions and Small Molecules
