Dr. Rizvi pursued an M.S and Ph.D combined degree program at the Center for Biotechnology and Drug Design, Department of Chemistry, Georgia State University (GSU), Atlanta, GA. While working at GSU, Dr. Rizvi was trained in the areas of Analytical Chemistry, Separation Sciences, Bioanalysis, Surfactant Chemistry, Chiral Separations of the Drugs, Trace Level Analysis (Forensic Chemistry) of Drugs in human body fluids (led to a US and International patent). Right after finishing M.S and Ph.D at the GSU, Dr. Rizvi pursued another Ph.D (under Prof. Martin J. D’Souza) at the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Department of the Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University (MU), Atlanta, GA in collaboration with Dr. Scott L Childs (founder and chief Scientific officer, Renovo Research, LLC). At Mercer, Dr. Rizvi was trained in the areas of Solid Dosage Formulations (direct compressed tablets), Controlled Release Formulations, Nanoparticulate System for Non-Invasive real time In Vivo Imaging, Cell-Lipid interaction Studies. At Renovo, Dr. Rizvi was trained in the area of Solid State Chemistry of the Drugs, e.g., Polymorphism and Cocrystallization. Moreover, Dr. Rizvi pursued part time postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Dr. Fredric M. Menger (Charles Howard Candler Professor) at the Sanford S. Atwood Chemistry Center, Emory University, where he polished his skills in Organic Synthesis, Soft Material Chemistry, Surface and Interfacial Sciences, Gene Transfection Studies using Gemini Surfactants, State of the art, Langmuir-Adam Balance Studies. Dr. Rizvi has published many peer-reviewed articles (cited over 600 times) in top ranking journals and two book chapters. Dr. Rizvi publications include one of the most highly rated article, two cover articles and one figure from Dr. Rizvi’s paper was included in the text book “Quantitative Chemical Analysis” by Daniel C. Harris (7th Edition, p 616, W. H. Freeman, 2006, ISBN-10: 0716770415). Dr. Rizvi also presented his work through posters and oral presentations in national and international conferences. Dr. Rizvi also serves as editor -in-chief, the editorial board member of several scientific journals and review papers for more than 20 different journals.
