About the Project

We are looking for new students to start a PhD in the development of innovative personalised medicines and medical devices prepared by three-dimensional printing. Depending on the skill and the interest of the candidates, the selected PhD students will be involved in multiple research projects around pharmaceutical 3D printing, including digital pharmacy, pharmacokinetic prediction, therapeutic drug monitoring and artificial intelligence for manufacture optimization.

The project will be conducted at University College London (UCL), a top 10 University in the 2021 QS World Rankings, within the vibrant and welcoming School of Pharmacy. The successful PhD Candidate will join a world-leading group in pharmaceutical 3D printing, supervised by Professor Abdul W. Basit. The research group has wide experience in formulation development and manufacture of 3D printed pharmaceuticals in ongoing clinical studies. Exchanges with laboratories’ partners are expected. The projects will also be in collaboration with broad multidisciplinary teams including medical doctors, clinical hospital pharmacists and computer engineers from the UK and Spain.


The successful candidate should have (or expect to achieve) a bachelor’s degree or relevant master’s qualification in Pharmacy, Engineering, Computer Science or related Science field. Prior lab experience, knowledge of computer science, 3D printing or coding will be valued. A good level of spoken and written English is essential.

Applications are welcome from both UK and overseas candidates. To apply, please send a CV and cover letter to Prof Abdul Basit at [Email Address Removed]. For more information on this project, please contact Prof Abdul Basit.
