Dr. Sa’ad Toyin ABDULLAHI

PROFILE

Appointed as Lecturer II in the Department of Pharmaceutical & Medicinal Chemistry in July 2012. My research centers on Pharmaceutical Analysis. I am particularly interested in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to measure concentrations of drugs in plasma and other body fluids. I am also interested in how and why drug exposure differs between individuals through pharmacogenetic influences on drug pharmacokinetics. My research interest also includes drug-drug interactions especially involving antiretroviral and antimalarial drugs.
