The Department of Pharmaceutics has innovation and a commitment to advancing health through knowledge. Our faculty members make significant contribution to enhancing understanding of drug action and delivery. Our Pharmaceutics labs are equipped with state of the art facilities to perform research in drug development and delivery. Our Department focus on investigation of physical and chemical properties of a drug substance alone and when combined with excipients. Generate information useful to the formulator in developing stable bioavailable dosage forms that can be mass produced. Our team members are expertise in novel drug delivery systems like Microspheres, Nano-technology, Nano-suspensions, Transdermal drug delivery, Solid dispersions, Fast dissolving tablets, Gastro-retention system, sustained action, delayed actions, repeat actions dosage forms, etc.,

The Department also provides knowledge to the students in manufacture of various types of tablets, capsules, syrups, ointments, pastes, gels, shampoos, creams, lotion, emulsion, suspension, injections, cosmetics, toilet preparations like shaving cream, after shave lotion, tooth paste, hair colorants, floor cleaners, deodorants, and its evaluation.

Thrust areas:

  • Investigation of efficacy of Transdermal penetration enhancers through skin mimics artificial membrane.
