Biography

Dr Bushra Almari trained as a pharmacist at the University of Bradford and qualified in 2014, then worked as a pharmacist in the hospital and community sectors. Bushra served a term as the elected Academic Affairs Officer at the University of Bradford Union of Students in 2014-2015, where she represented the student body at University level on committees including the University Council, Learning & Teaching Committee and the Senate. During her term as Academic Affairs Officer, Bushra led the student response to the QAA action plan following the QAA's Higher Education Review (HER).

In 2015, Bushra joined Dr Michael Harte's laboratory at the University of Manchester as an Honourary Research Assistant before securing the President's Doctoral Scholar Award in 2016 to undertake her PhD with the same group. She completed her PhD in 2019 and published a thesis titled Application of amyloid-secreting cellular systems in the development of preclinical models of relevance to Alzheimer's disease. During her PhD at Manchester, Bushra taught on several Pharmacy modules at the University of Manchester as a graduate teaching assistant (GTA) and received an award for outstanding teaching by the Doctoral Academy. She also published two peer-reviewed journal articles, including a visualised experiment article.

Bushra then became a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacy & Pharmacy Practice at the University of Huddersfield in early 2020 and teaches primarily on the MSc Clinical Pharmacy programme. She is also involved in Alzheimer's disease research as well as clinical research collaborating with colleagues in the School.
