Seepra is a MITACS Accelerate Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto with Learn and Confirm Inc. as her Industry Sponsor. She completed her PhD at Rhodes University, South Africa, after completing her BPharm and MPharm (Pharmaceutics) in India. Her PhD research involved exploration of economical and less time-consuming alternatives to clinical endpoint studies such as in vitro release testing (IVRT) and tape stripping to demonstrate equivalence between cream products containing metronidazole and correlating the in vitro-in vivo results which may justify a biowaiver for creams containing metronidazole. As a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Biopharmaceutics Research Institute, Rhodes University, she worked on clinical studies involving vasoconstrictor assay to assess bioavailability/bioequivalence of topical corticosteroid products. She has more than 10 peer-reviewed publications to her credit and has presented her research at more than 9 conferences and seminars.
