DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICS:
Pharmaceutics is the study of the quantitative aspects of drug delivery, and involves the design, development, and evaluation of drugs in combination with an appropriate dosage form. It is the study of relationships between drug formulation, delivery, disposition and clinical response A pharmaceutical scientist characterizes physical properties of drugs, develops innovative delivery systems for drugs, quantitatively evaluates drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and pharmacological activity in the living organism.
The Department of Pharmaceutics is a place where an unwavering commitment to excellence in research, instruction and service is demonstrated through the extraordinary productivity and success of our faculty, staff and students. Our program focuses on Physiologically-Based
Our department concentrates on four areas of pharmaceutics:
1.Drug delivery: the development of the most appropriate form or method for administering a pharmaceutical compound.
2.Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine, the design of medical interventions at the scale of molecules and atoms.
3.Biopharmaceutics, the study of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of drugs and toxins in the body.
4.Microbiology and Biotechnology.
DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY:
The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is primarily involved in providing strong foundation in fundamentals of different branches of chemistry viz.
Organic chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicinal chemistry and Analytical chemistry.
The objective of the department is to provide profound theoretical knowledge to the students and to shape them into professionals with technical competence
by intensive training. Faculty of this department are well experienced and highly qualified with a dedication to teaching. The entire faculty have the
exposure and opportunity to carry out research. The department has nearly 28 original research articles published in reputed journals.
Pharmaceutical Chemistry Department has all basic and advanced features like well ventilated spacious laboratories with water and gas connections, fume
free environment, glass wares including custom designed vessels etc. The department has HPLC, FTIR and UV spectrophotometers, Digital melting point
apparatus, microwave reactor, hot air oven, vacuum oven, digital mixers and stirrers, high end filtration equipments, Freeze dryers and other instruments
to carry out research. In addition, the department has computational facility for designing drug candidates.
DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACOLOGY & PHARMACOGNOSY:
Pharmacology is a subject, which connects the other disciplines of pharmaceutical sciences with medicine. This branch of science equips a student with the
ability to appreciate the establishment of dose, dosage, efficacy and safety of medicines, their mechanisms and disposition. Pharmacology gives immense scope
for exploration in to diversified subdomains such as signalling and molecular mechanisms of medicines, clinical pharmacology and biopharmaceutics,
non-clinical and clinical trials. This opens up opportunities for further academic upgradation, sometimes with funded research projects of national
importance supported by government funding agencies.
is probably the oldest of the modern sciences that involves the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of
natural drugs, including the search for new drugs from natural sources. The subject is one of the core branches in the pharmacy curriculum. The strength of
the department lies in its modern labs, sophisticated instruments and high quality research output. The department has produced about 02 Ph. D., scholars who
are enjoying impressive positions in industry and academia.
