Development of drug delivery systems | Projects on liposomal formulations | Cyclodextrin based drug delivery system | Microcapsules and microspheres | Oral controlled release preparations | Polymer synthesis | Polymeric coating | Pelletization

Students are intensively trained in the preparation and development of formulations like tablets, capsules, syrups, injections, creams, ointments etc.

III. Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

The Pharmaceutical Chemistry laboratories for Pharmaceutical Organic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Advanced Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry,Chemistry of Bulk Drugs and Chemistry of Natural Products are focused on simple compound analysis to complex multi step Synthesis/process development of new or existing drugs, and metabolic studies on drugs.

 

IV. Department of Pharmacognosy

Sustainability of human life is unimaginable without medicinal plants. India has rich heritage of medicinal plants passed on from thousands of generations. This department has the expertise for the Identification of plant drugs and extraction of active ingredients from plants/mixtures

 

MEDICINAL GARDEN

We have established an arboretum of medicinal plants in the campus. The objective of establishing this garden is to maintain a conservatory of the most common and important species of medicinal and aromatic plants which are being used in day-to- day primary health care. All the plant species were authentically identified by expert taxonomists, labeled and in many cases their therapeutic values in curing different diseases are also highlighted.

V. Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis

 MAJOR INSTRUMENTS:

UV- Visible spectrophotometer | Flourimeter | Nephlometer | Colorimeter | Analytical balance.

AREAS OF RESEARCH

Pharmaceutical Analysis is an integral part of the activities of pharmaceutical research and development as well as manufacturing and regulatory affairs. There is a great demand for trained personnel in this field. To meet these requirements the Department has well trained faculty and expertise for carrying out research work. Some of the areas of expertise include:

 

  • Analytical method development and validation

  • Spectrophotometric Multicomponent analysis

  • Stability indicating methods

  • Herbal and Phytochemical analysis

  • Bioanalysis and Bioassay development

  • Bioactivity guided fractionation of herbal extracts

VI. Department of Pharmaceutical Microbiology & Biotechnology:

 MAJOR INSTRUMENTS:

Aseptic room with Laminar air Flow chamber | Incubator | Hot air oven | Autoclave Unit | Digital colony counter.

To study microbiology is to pursue the breadth of biology, as microorganisms provide experimental material for understanding physiology, cell structure and function, biochemistry, molecular biology etc. In this lab students are well trained in the study of bacteria, fermentation techniques using various cultures, microbial assays, tests for purity and sterilization techniques which are widely applied in hospitals, biotechnology as well as pharmacy.
