Department of Pharmaceutics

Pharmaceutics is powerful and multidisciplinary sector that aims to harmonize the principles of chemistry, engineering and biology to understand how to make pharmaceutical dosage forms against human ailments. The department illustrates biopharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics & pharmacodynamics, drug transport and drug delivery systems. The Pharmaceutics department offers two year M.Pharm (Pharmaceutics) program.

The department has a team of highly qualified and dedicated faculty and well equipped laboratories with facilities for UG, PG Programs and research. The field of Pharmaceutics encompasses many exciting subjects such as Novel drug delivery system, Physical Pharmaceutics, Industrial Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Engineering, which are the most useful subjects that enable the development of pharmaceutical dosage forms in the aim of disease free society.

The faculty has been engaged in teaching B. Pharm and M. Pharm curriculum and imparting quality education. The faculty has expertise in preparation of conventional and novel drug delivery systems for controlled release and targeted drug delivery. The thrust areas of research involving in novel drug delivery systems are as follows

  • Fast dissolving drug delivery systems, Solid dispersions & Controlled and sustained release oral formulations.
  • Self emulsifying drug delivery systems, Pulmonary delivery of vaccines & Microspheres and nanoparticles
  • Transdermal drug delivery systems & Gastroretentive and mucoadhesive drug delivery systems
