The well furnished department caters to the practical requirements of the subject technologies of Drugs and Cosmetics, Biological Pharmaceuticals, Pharmaceutics, Dispensing pharmacy, Pharmaceutical engineering and unit operations. This laboratory is equipped with the state of art equipment and machinery required for impartment used in manufacturing of Pharmaceutical dosage forms like Tablets, Capsules, Ointment, Liquid orals, Parenterals, Novel drug delivery systems, Packaging science, etc. We offer a training environment that includes cutting edge laboratory instrumentation and technologies, award-winning faculty, devoted and experienced teachers and knowledgeable staff.
The Department of Pharmaceutics is regarded as an important one in teaching research in the areas of drug formulation, drug delivery, biopharmaceutical assessment etc. Pharmaceutics is concerned with the strategies by which biologically active compounds are presented to the body so as to elicit an optimal response. It includes the design,preparation; formulation and testing of drug delivery systems. The Faculty lays emphasis on integrated research approach on modern and indigenous drugs and formulations. There is a planned Programme of product development that includes the specific areas of research of drug targeting like Nanotechnology (Nano-Silver particles and Solid-Lipid Nanoparticles), Vesicular drug delivery systems (Aquasomes, Niosomes and Liposomes), Transdermal drug delivery system, Particulate drug delivery system (Mucoadhesive Microspheres and Hollow Microspheres/Microballoons) and Matrix tablets. The department is also undertaking academia- industry collaboration projects with major Research Laboratories and Pharmaceutical industries.
