Othman Al Musaimi is a Research Associate at the Department of Chemical Engineering-Imperial College London. His research interests focus on developing synthetic, separation, and purification methodologies for therapeutic peptide entities. Currently, he is working on expanding the hydrophobicity index of amino acids and delivering blood-brain barrier shuttle peptides to target brain-related diseases.

Othman has attained his Ph.D. in the Pharmaceutical Chemistry discipline, from the University of Kwazulu-Natal - South Africa under the supervision of Prof. Fernando Albericio and Prof. Beatriz G. de la Torre.

Othman has joined Imperial College London on the 4th of May 2021.
