Title: Dr Abdur Rashid is an Assistant Professor in the department of pharmaceutics, college of pharmacy at King Khalid University,Abha, KSA. He has completed his PhD in 2011 from the University of Queensland, School of Chemical Engineering, Brisabne, Australia. Dr Abdur Rashid has published 18 peer-reviewed research articles and conference papers so far. He has had 7 poster presentations in national and international conferences. Dr Abdur Rashid enjoys crystallizing active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) with a desired size, developing new formulations and making new dosage forms. He became more interested in this area because of his PhD crystallization research project, which represents a fundamental link between chemical engineering, pharmaceutics and the pharmaceutical industry. This will be helpful to open a window for multi-disciplinary researchers and to undertake state-of-the-art research for the development and formulation of different cost effective and therapeutically effective dosage forms.
