A branch that deals with production of any formulation from New Chemical Entity (NCE) or any old drug to be used safely and effectively in patients is Pharmaceutics. It is a science of designing a new dosage form. This department is continuously remain engaged in research and academic activities. The department includes research in direction of.

  •   Pre-formulation studies.
  •   Development of different pharmaceutical dosage forms including novel and nanotechnology based drug delivery systems.
  •   Evaluation of developed dosage forms with respect to various in vitro and in vivo parameters.
  •   Studying the biopharmaceutical and pharmacokinetic aspects of the drug as well as its dosage forms.
  •    To be the interface between industry, academics and healthcare system.

Thus, this field encourages young scientists towards new ways of development in pharmaceuticals.

Medicinal chemistry aims the identification, synthesis and the development of new chemical compounds that are suitable for therapeutic use.

Medicinal chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of synthesizing new pharmaceuticals. They also improve the processes by which existing pharmaceuticals are made. Medicinal chemists are focused on drug discovery and development and are concerned with the isolation of medicinal agents found in plants, as well as the creation of new synthetic drug compounds.

It involves many aspects like synthesis, isolation ,purification and characterization of anticipated organic compounds that can be used in medicine for the treatment and cure of disease. On the other hand it establishes a link between chemical stracture and biological activity.

It's a very deep and complex discipline that combines knowledge of organic chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, bioinformatics, biochemistry, pharmacodynamics, Biopharmacy and pharmacokinetic Major Equipments used in Chemistry

  • Muffle Furnace.
  • Mechanical Stirrers.
  • Magnetic Stirrers with Thermostat.
  • Vacuum Pump.
  • Digital pH meter.
  • Hot plate.

It includes all the performances and working associated with the manufacturing and production of medicinal products assuring that the product meets the patients’ expectations giving them the required quality of safety and efficacy. the Pharmaceutical Analysis section is an indispensable part of the Quality Assurance department which includes introduction to principle, instrumentation, methods and applications of various analytical techniques including but not limited to Titrimetry, Gravimetric analysis, Spectroscopy, Chromatography, Capillary electrophoresis, Potentiometry etc.

Since the world’s health assembly express great concern about the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines, particularly those products or active pharmaceutical substances imported into, or produced in, developing countries. The quality assurance department plays a great role in fulfilling all the required operations therein.

List of instruments:

  • HPLC System.
  • UV-Spectrophotometer.
  • Dissolution Test Apparatus.
  • Micrometer.
  • Analytical balance.
  • Humidity Chamber.
  • TLC Chamber.
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer.

It is the science that deals with the study of drugs, including their origin, nature, chemistry, uses and beneficial and adverse effects. It includes the study of substances that bind to regulatory molecules and activate or inhibit normal body processes."The word pharmacology is derived from two Greek words:

  • pharmakos meaning "drug".
  • logos meaning "study or reasoning"

The department fosters independent but interactive research programs leading to the discovery of new drugs that will impact prevention or treatment of disease. It embraces knowledge of the sources, chemical properties, biological effects and therapeutic uses of drugs.
The branches of pharmacology are

  • Clinical pharmacology.
  • Neuropharmacology.
  • Pharmacogenetics.
  • Cardiovascular pharmacology.
  • Pharmacoepidemiology.
  • Toxicology.
  • Psychopharmacology etc.

If you feel a sense of excitement and enthusiasm about understanding drug action, and how drugs may be used to probe the physiological and biochemical processes of life, you should explore pharmacology.
