Dr. Mansoor M. Amiji received his undergraduate degree in pharmacy from Northeastern University in 1988 and his PhD in pharmaceutics from Purdue University in 1992. His areas of specialization include polymeric biomaterials, advanced drug delivery systems, and nanomedical technologies.

Dr. Amiji's research interests include the synthesis of novel polymeric materials for medical and pharmaceutical applications; surface modification of cationic polymers by the complexation-interpenetration method to develop biocompatible materials; the 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 anti-angiogenic drugs for solid tumors in novel biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles; intracellular delivery systems for drugs and genes using target-specific, long-circulating, biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles; and gold and iron-gold core-shell nanoparticles for biosensing, imaging, and delivery applications. His research has received sustained funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), foundations, and local industries.

Dr. Amiji is Professor and Associate Chair of the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department and Co-Director of the Northeastern University Nanomedicine Education and Research Consortium (NERC). The NERC oversees a doctoral training grant in nanomedicine science and technology that was co-funded by the NIH and NSF. He has two published books, Applied Physical Pharmacy and Polymeric Gene Delivery: Principles and Applications, along with numerous manuscript publications. He has also received a number of awards, including the 2003 Eurand Award for Innovative Oral Drug Delivery Research, Third Prize.

Dr. Amiji has supervised the research efforts of over 50 postdoctoral associates, doctoral and master's level graduate students, and undergraduate honors students over the last 13 years. His teaching responsibilities include the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program and graduate programs (MS and PhD) in pharmaceutical sciences, biotechnology, and nanomedicine.
