Department of Pharmaceutics

Major areas of Research:
The major areas of research work broadly include Novel drug delivery and conventional drug delivery which are as follows:

  • Advanced drug delivery systems
  • Nanoparticulate drug targeting approaches
  • Per Oral delivery systems – Buccal, transdermal and topical drug delivery systems
  • Novel multiparticulate delivery platforms
  • Cell line studies for determining cytotoxicity and uptake of drugs and formulations
  • Dissolution and diffusion testing of drugs and formulations

Strength of Department:
The department has well equipped pilot plant with advanced instruments in the research laboratories such as:

  • Ultrasound probe sonicator: used in formulations of lipid and non-lipid based sub micro and nanosystems
  • HPLC: used for qualitative and quantitative estimations of compounds, used for estimation of drug levels in biological fluids and tissues
  • Dissolution apparatus: Used for Studying the drug Release from various dosageforms
  • UV Spectrophotometer: To determine the concentration of drugs in various dosageforms
  • FTIR: To carry out drug excipient compatibility studies
  • KARNAVATI tablet punching machine: used for tablet punching
  • Thermo lab Stability Chamber: To carryout Stress Stability studies for designed formulations

The department has experienced and highly qualified faculty who are actively collaborating with National and International Universities, Institutes and Pharmaceutical Companies. The department has received funds from various government and private organizations such as ICMR, DST, AICTE, HPTU and State Pharmacy Council. The department works towards improving the skills of PG students by involving them in training and taking up projects from reputed private Pharmaceutical Companies. Students are exposed to workshops and guest lecturers delivered by eminent personalities during their course.
