Research Profile

Joseph O'Shea

Biography

Dr. Joey O'Shea is a Lecturer in Pharmaceutics in the School of Pharmacy, University College Cork. 
He completed his Bachelor of Pharmacy degree in UCC in 2012 and Master of Pharmacy degree in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2013. Dr O'Shea completed his Ph.D. in the School of Pharmacy in UCC in 2018. The focus of his doctoral work was on the biopharmaceutical aspects of solid oral dose formulation performance and the predictive capacity of various in vitro, in vivo and in silico methods of characterisation for oral bio-enabling formulations. Following completion of his PhD, Dr O'Shea held numerous positions in the pharmaceutical industry in Ireland, including in formulation development, clinical and regulatory affairs and in process development and technical support. Dr O'Shea returned to academia in November 2019, taking up a role as Lecturer in Pharmaceutics in the School of Pharmacy, UCC. He currently teaches on the M.Pharm. undergraduate programme and on the MSc in Pharmaceutical Technology and Quality Systems, an on line masters course designed to train graduates working in the pharmaceutical industry to become a Qualified Person (QP).
