Pharm. from the Mohan Lal Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India in 2006 and became a registered pharmacist in India. He received his M. Pharm. in pharmaceutical chemistry from U. P. Technical University, Lucknow, India with a MHRD-Post-graduate fellowship (2006-2008) by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). He earned his Ph.D. in pharmacokinetics & metabolism from CSIR-Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, India. He was awarded Senior Research Fellowship during his graduate studies (2011-2015) by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). After his graduate studies, Dr. Sharma did his post-doctoral research under the supervision of Dr. Bonnie A. Avery at the University of Mississippi (2015-2017) and University of Florida (2017-2019).
Abhisheak Sharma’s research focuses on the in vivo and in vitro preclinical pharmacokinetic studies of new chemical entities and natural products. He is proficient in various approaches to bioanalytical method development and validation of discovery compounds and plant alkaloids in different biological matrices (blood, dried blood spot, plasma, serum, tissue homogenates, and urine) using various analytical techniques (UPLC-MS/MS, UPLC-PDA-MS, and UPLC-PDA/FL). His research interests include translational development of new chemical entities to candidate drugs using PK-PD modeling and simulation approach. Dr. Sharma published more than sixty peer-reviewed articles in highly respected journals and one book chapter in the field of pharmacokinetics and drug discovery. His research interests include: pharmacokinetics, drug development, drug-drug interaction, pharmacokinetic modeling and simulation
