Zeeshan Ahmad is a Professor in Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery & Royal Society Industry Fellow at De Montfort University (School of Pharmacy). He is a Royal Society Industry Fellow and also leads the EPSRC EHDA Network (a highly interdisciplinary initiative involving industry and academia).
He has broad research interests in medical materials and their applications for healthcare (interfacing at chemistry, biology, physics and biomedical engineering).
Specifically, these include various methods of drug delivery (smart nanoparticles and microparticles, bubbles, fibrous materials and transdermal/skin contact systems), tissue engineering (scaffolds and cell guidance), medical device coatings (orthopedic implants) and biomedical material synthesis (polymers and bioceramics) and fabrication (EHDA, microfluidic and emulsion methods).
He has published numerous articles and is also a peer-reviewer for various journal publishers (RSC, Elsevier, Springer, ACS, IoP, etc). He has delivered presentations (national and international) at symposia (including conferences), industry and universities.He has supervised numerous PhD students (including to completion, national and international) in additon to undergraduates on MPharm, BSc Pharm Sci, BSc Pharm and Cosm Sci, MSc Biomaterials.
