Azza Ghazi

Professor of Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry and Drug Quality Control


Prof. Azza joined Beirut Arab University in 2013 after over 21 years of experience teaching at Alexandria University, where she taught a wide variety of courses including Qualitative Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry, Quantitative Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, Applied Analytical Chemistry (water, lipid and milk analysis), Pharmaceutical Analysis and Drug Quality Control for undergraduates and postgraduates students. During her academic career, she served as the Head of Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry department, Executive manager of "The Quality Assurance & Accreditation Center", and executive manager of General and Pharmaceutical Unit for Bioequvalance Studies at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Alexandria University.

Prof. Azza’s research interest focuses on the design of analytical methods for various pharmaceutical compounds in different matrices and analytical problem solving using different analytical techniques, such as spectrophotometric, colorimetric, fluorimetry , various chromatographic (HPLC,HPTLC), kinetic, voltammetric and chemometric methods. Prof. Azza supervised more than 10 master and PhD theses in Alexandria University and Beirut Arab University. Her work appeared in a variety of high-impact journals.
