Department of Pharmaceutics

Pharmaceutics is the discipline of Pharmacy that deals with the process of turning a new chemical entity (NCE) or drugs into a medication (formulation) to be used safely and effectively by patients, thus known as the science of dosage form design. Drugs need special measures in therapeutically relevant amounts at their sites of action to achieve effective pharmacological properties. Pharmaceutics helps relate the formulation of drugs in their delivery and disposition in the body. Pharmaceutics deals with the formulation of a pure drug substance into a dosage form. We are multidisciplinary department providing expertise in the areas of drug discovery, development and evaluation. Branches of Pharmaceutics include:

  • Pharmaceutical formulation
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Dispensing Pharmacy
  • Industrial Pharmacy
  • Pharmaceutical Technology
  • Physical Pharmacy
  • Pharmaceutical Jurisprudence

At the undergraduate level the subject includes Pharmaceutics, Physical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Technology, Microbiology & biotechnology, Novel drug delivery systems, Biopharmaceutics & Pharmacokinetics, Preformulation, Production Management and Pharmaceutical marketing.

The Department reaches out to the educational and research demand of pharmaceutical industries. Research activities include Pharmaceutical Formulations, Novel Drug Delivery Systems, Physical Pharmacy, Biopharmaceutics and Pharmacokinetics.

Recent research topics include: Sustained-release formulations of drugs, Design of novel drug delivery systems, Nanotechnology, Polymer films as coating and matrices for drugs, Solubility enhancement of BCS II drugs, Site specific drug delivery systems, Biodegradable polymers, Transdermal and oral delivery of drugs, Occular drug delivery and Dermatological formulations.

After preparing all formulations it is necessary to evaluate the dosage forms. Quality control of all dosage forms are an essential operation of the pharmaceutical industry. Drugs must be marketed as safe and therapeutically active formulations whose performance is consistent and predictable.
