Atheer Awad

Atheer received her Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from Applied Science University, Jordan in 2015.

She then pursued an MSc in Pharmaceutics at the UCL School of Pharmacy, University College of London, where her research was aimed at exploring the potential of 3D printing for the formulation of abuse-deterrent and alcohol-resistant formulations. Currently, she is completing a PhD in Pharmaceutics at the same institution where her research is focused on fabricating drug delivery systems and implantable devices using 3D printing. Her research has allowed her to explore a multitude of 3D printing technologies including, fused deposition modelling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), direct light processing (DLP) and direct powder extrusion (DPE). Moreover, she has worked in collaboration with FabRx, the world’s first company specialised in the 3D printing of pharmaceuticals, to develop novel dosage forms and medical devices. Since 2018, Atheer has published more than 15 articles and book chapters on the topic of 3D printing, delivered posters and oral presentations at national and international conferences and received prestigious awards from the AAPS and UCL on her research.
