Dr Ghori was graduated with a Pharm.D (Doctor of Pharmacy) degree from B. Z. University (Pakistan) in 2009 and became a registered pharmacist (RPh) with the Punjab Pharmacy Council, Pakistan. He pursued his career as a Community Pharmacist in Pharmagen Health Care Ltd and where he accede to a managerial role in the short span of time. Dr Ghori joined the University of Huddersfield for PhD in 2010, during his PhD, he presented his findings at many national and international conferences and published his findings in high impact journals. He has successfully established the student chapter of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AAPS) at the University of Huddersfield and served as its founding Chair (2014-15). He was also the proud recipient of the prestigious vice-chancellor research student of the year award 2015. He was awarded his doctorate in January 2015 and subsequently appointed as a Post-doctoral Research Assistant in School of Applied Sciences at the University of Huddersfield, and he has successfully developed a patented AFM based nanoscale chemical imaging technique, CIDA (chemical imaging by dissolution analysis), and won the prestigious platinum award 2016 from Bruker Nano-surface, UK. He was also named among the outstanding performing staff for the year 2017-18 by the University of Huddersfield, UK. Currently, he is working as a senior research fellow and admission tutor (Pharmacy) at the University of Huddersfield. His research focused on the design, development and characterisation of new materials, instruments and technologies including 3D and 4D printing, nanoscale chemical, electrical and mechanical imaging-based techniques for drug delivery and biomedical applications.
