Dr Antoun graduated with an honours degree in Pharmacy in 1997 and went to undertake a PhD studying the effect of initiation factors on protein synthesis in Uppsala University, Sweden. After completing his PhD in 2005, He joined the school of Cancer sciences, University of Birmingham as a research Fellow with particular interest on the effect of immunological factors such as NKG2D ligands on the clinical outcome of Stem cell Transplant. Dr Antoun worked as a clinical Pharmacist in Dudley and Walsall mental health trust. Dr Antoun came to the University of Wolverhampton in 2016 to take up the post of Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology.
