Anoud is a PhD student in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Washington State University Spokane. She is a pharmacist by profession with bachelor’s degrees in pharmacy and master’s degrees in pharmaceutical technology. She has a five-year work experience as lecturer in pharmaceutical technology department at Jordan University of Science and Technology. During her masters, she focused on preparation of solid dispersions with different polymers to improve the dissolution rate of poorly soluble drugs. She got a fully funded scholarship from Jordan University of Science and Technology to pursue her PhD in US.
