Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow working on developing an in-vitro model of the human subcutaneous tissue for testing drug bioavailability. 

My main fields of research are tissue engineering, drug delivery, in-vitro modelling and research translation. My broad research agenda is to explore how innovation in these areas can bridge the gap between research discoveries and impact on health and well-being in society.

Research keywords:

  • Tissue engineering
  • Drug delivery
  • 3Rs
  • In-vitro modelling
  • Translational research

Asme received her PhD in 2012 from the University of Nottingham on the development of an in-situ solidifying scaffold for bone tissue regeneration.  Following this, She was a Senior Research Associate at the University of Portsmouth working on the development of nanoparticles as drug delivery tools across the blood-brain barrier. She then moved to industry to work as a Senior Formulation Scientist and then Head of Preclinical and Clinical development, working on the development of novel drugs for subcutaneous delivery.
