Ali is a pharmacist by training and a pharmaceutical scientist with well-established expertise in drug delivery and dosage form design. Ali leads the “Drug Delivery Research Group” in AUT. His research is focused on 3D printing, bio-printing and microencapsulation of bioactives/drugs for controlled/targeted treatments in humans and animals. Ali’s group use 3D printing technology to design patient specific drug delivery devices with complex geometries. On the other hand, microencapsulation techniques are used in his lab to control drug release rate, design target specific delivery systems and protect encapsulates from processing/environmental degradation.
