Personal Description:

Qualified Pharmacist (with two daugters) with Doctoral (PhD) degree in medicinal chemistry. I have a strong academic background in medicinal chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry and biological sciences coupled with research experience.

Academic Achievements:

October, 2012 –June, 2016.

• PhD, Institute of Cancer Therapeutics, University of Bradford, UK.

New C-C Chemokine Receptor Type 7 Antagonists
Small molecules, CCR7 receptor antagonists, were designed and synthesized as therapeutic agents against metastatic cancer. Molecules were tested and showed a good effect against CCR7 receptor.
I have established my research area in the rational drug design and used computational molecular modelling to identify novel X-ray crystal structures. I successfully configured the existing under agarose assay to assess the cells chemotactic responses to multiple chemoattractants and to evaluate the activity and selectivity of the most effective compound against CCR7 receptor.

September 2014 – April 2015.

• Graduate Teaching Assistants and Part-time Tutors (GTA), University of Bradford, UK.

This course introduces a number of teaching theories and approaches to teaching and learning. It also introduces the UK Professional Standards Framework.

September 2009 – September 2010

• Master (MSc), Institute of Cancer Therapeutics, University of Bradford.
New CXCR4 chemokine receptor antagonists
New analogues of ICT5040 were discovered by using molecular modelling and synthesized successfully inside the Institute of Cancer Therapeutics labs. The small molecule showed better binding and affinity to the CXCR4 receptor in silico, and also tested by using calcium flux assay to show some activity against CXCR4 receptor.

October 2001 – October 2006

• B.Sc. Hons. Pharmacy, Tripoli University.
Dissertation project- Selenium and cancer

Technical Skills:

• Spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR, NMR, fluorescent).
• Mass spectrometry (conventional and isotope-ratio MS)
• Chromatography (GC, LC, HPLC, TLC)
• Computational chemistry and molecular modelling
• Cell culture, cell migration assays, cell proliferation assays, Calcium flux assay, Immunofluorescence staining, Live cell Imaging.
• Molecular and cell biological techniques including flow cytometry, viability assays, Western blotting.
• Good Written skills; fluent in oral communication and presentations, manuscript preparation


October 2012 – June, 2016
• Supervision of Master and placement students working within the group
• Demonstrator in undergraduate Organic and biomedical practical labs, University of Bradford.

October 2010 – October 2012
• Researcher in medicinal chemistry at Biotechnology Department, Biotechnology research Center, Libya.
• Associate Lecturer in medicinal chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Zawia University, Libya
• Community pharmacist at Raneem Pharmacy, My role was to advise patients on the recommended dosage, warning, storage and possible side effects of all dispensed medications. Assist customers for the purchase of the OTC medications. Perform services such as taking blood pressure and temperature.

October 2006 – September 2009
• Community pharmacist at Waheed Pharmacy,

Volunteering &. Community Activities

• The European Association for Cancer Research, EACR, UK
• Member of Libyan Pharmaceutical committee, 2000-2007
• Libyan High Committee for Childhood, Tripoli, Libya
• Libyan Red Crescent Society/ Tripoli, Libya
• Children vaccination program.
