Tarek Abd EL-Napy AhmedPhD

Faculty of Pharmacy
Department of Pharmaceutics and Industrial Pharmacy
Al-Azhar University

Dr. Tarek completed his undergraduate studies from Faculty of pharmacy, Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt. He then joined the department of pharmaceutics and industrial pharmacy in 2003 as demonstrator and completed his master within four years. After completing his master degree, Dr. Tarek felt that he requires both more in-depth study and to get in touch with an international school of pharmacy to be able to practice the pharmaceutical science proficiently; therefore he decided to complete the requirements for one of the Egyptian government scholars (channel system) where he passed the TOFEL test, prepared his paper and documents and travelled to USA in 2008 where he joined Texas A&M health science center (TX, USA) as a PhD visiting scholar. During that period Dr. Tarek got an excellent knowledge in the development of novel drug delivery (in situ gel and in situ microparticles), HPLC analysis for both in vitro and in vivo study. After completing his study, he came back from USA in 2010 where he did make his defense within two months and joined the department of pharmaceutics and industrial pharmacy as lecturer in March 2010. 

Over his years of experience, Dr. Tarek gained an excellent teaching skill of both practical and academic theoretical pharmaceutical courses through his dealing with all of the pharmaceutical practical courses for undergraduate students (2003-2007), and later after he earned his Ph.D degree, he have academic teaching responsibilities that include; Pharmaceutics I and Pharmaceutics III for the 2nd and 4th year students respectively at Al-Azhar university (2010-2011), Liquid dosage forms and industrial pharmacy at the Egyptian Russian University (2010-2011). Physical Pharmacy, Solid dosage forms, pharmacokinetics, Biopharmaceutics, Sterile dosage forms, semisolid dosage forms and nanotechnology during his work at King Abdulaziz University.          

Beside the teaching skill, Dr. Tarek has a lot of international publications in the pharmaceutical scientific research journals such as: International journal of pharmaceutics, journal of microencapsulation, AAPS PharmSciTech, Drug Development and Industrial Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Development and Technology, International journal of drug delivery and others.

Research Interests

Nanoparticles (including Nanospheres, Nanocapsules and Solid lipid Nanoparticles) are the future area of interest.

A novel controlling release technique (In situ gel and ISM systems) for the delivery of drugs (Haloperidol and Montelukast) was the area of interest for the PhD, a one month formulations for both drugs have been prepared, the in vitro, in vivo and stability testing of the prepared formulae have been studied.

The topical formulation and the solid dispersion technique were the areas of interest, which I was focused in my master in which the aqueous solubility and dissolution of a poorly Soluble drug "Mefenamic acid" was enhanced, then formulating the drug in different Topical formulations including creams and gels, Studying the rheological properties Of the formulations and then study the stability of these formulations.

Nidambur Vasudev BallalPhD

Manipal College of Dental Sciences
Manipal University, Karnataka

Dr. Ballal graduated with a bachelor degree of Dentistry from the SDM College of Dental Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka, India (1994-1999). He then acquired a Master’s degree in the specialty of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics from Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Manipal University, India (2001-2004). Following which, he joined as a full-time faculty in the same institution. His zest in research, inspired him to pursue a PhD degree, which he acquired in Endodontics from same university (2006-2011). Currently, he upholds the position of Professor in the specialty of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics. His interest and perseverance to share and acquire research ideas and  advancement of clinical skills, created new vistas by collaboration with other  renowned universities  both at national and international levels. His expertise in the field has authorized him to hold, the post of an editorial board member of 9 international journals and reviewer of 35 international journals. He has received several international awards for his outstanding contribution in research activities. He has 85 publications to his credit in various international and national journals. His topic of profound interest is on irrigating agents, root canal disinfection and smear layer, rendering to which, he   was the first to explore the use of “Maleic acid” as a de novo root canal irrigant in the endodontic specialty. He has participated in various conferences and delivered guest lectures both at the national and international levels.  He has authored a chapter on smear layer in text book “Essentials of Endodontics”. His published manuscripts have been cited numerously as much as 150 times and with H index of 7.
