Mansoor Amiji, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy, Bouve College of Health Sciences and Associate Director of the Nanomedicine Consortium, Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

Dr. Amiji received his undergraduate degree in pharmacy from Northeastern University in 1988 and his Ph.D. in pharmaceutics/biomaterial science from Purdue University in 1992. His areas of specialization include polymeric biomaterials, drug delivery systems, and nanomedical technologies.

Dr. Amiji’s research interests include synthesis of novel polymeric materials for medical and pharmaceutical applications; surface modification of cationic polymers by the complexation-interpenetration method to develop biocompatible materials; preparation and characterization of polymeric membranes and microcapsules with controlled permeability properties for medical and pharmaceutical applications; target-specific drug and vaccine delivery systems for gastrointestinal tract infections; localized delivery of cytotoxic and antiangiogenic drugs for solid tumors in novel biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles intracellular delivery systems for drugs and genes using target-specific, long-circulating, biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles; gold and iron-gold core-shell nanoparticles for biosensing, imaging and delivery applications. His research has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, local biotechnology and medical device industries, and private foundations.

Dr. Amiji has extensively published research articles, book chapters, and conference proceedings. He has also published two books - Applied Physical Pharmacy (McGraw-Hill, 2003) and Polymeric Gene Delivery Systems: Principles and Applications (CRC Press, 2004). Dr. Amiji has received a number of awards and accolades including the third prize of Eurand Award for Outstanding Research in Oral Drug Delivery in 2003.

Teaching the Nanotechnology for Medical Diagnostics and Treatment course in the Nano Industrial Impact Workshop on Sunday May 7, 2006.
