About Department Of Pharmaceutical Chemistry
Pharmaceutical Chemistry Department is equipped with state of art facilities providing hands on experience to Pharma graduates. To meet the global needs in the area of chemistry, we shape our students by exposing them to the skill based practical involving qualitative analysis, pharmaceutical synthesis, organic synthesis and pharmaceutical analysis of drugs and excipients. Various subjects like Pharmaceutical Inorganic Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Instrumental Methods of Analysis, Advanced Instrumentation Techniques, Computer Aided Drug Design, Quality Assurance, etc are being taught during the curriculum through Pharmaceutical Chemistry department. The departmental infrastructure comprises well maintained laboratories and sophisticated equipment like ‘HPLC’, ‘UV- spectrophotometer’, ‘Microwave synthesizer’, ‘Deep freezer’ etc for chemistry research.
To develop the department as centre of excellence in all aspects of
education&research in the areas of drug discovery, development and evaluation.
To create competent chemists & analysts through innovative ideas, modern concepts & trends in the field of pharmaceutical chemistry.
To impart knowledge & provide expertise in the emerging areas of target-based drug design and custom green synthesis.
To inculcate training & research attitude in students & faculty by providing academic
ambience in area of synthetic & analytical chemistry.
Development of best resources for understanding of the design, synthesis, delivery,
disposition, action and safety of biologically active compounds& utilization of
excellent facilities for students and researchers benefit.
To provide analytical and consultancy service to industries and at the same time make
efforts to fetch research grants.
Strong collaboration with institutions, universities and industries of national repute.
Development of more-economic and greener strategies for chemical synthesis and
Advancing computational methodologies in drug design to model molecular
interactions and reactivities, from simple to complex molecules.
To improve the knowledge base required for synthesis, isolation, purification and
characterization of various pharmaceuticals.
To equip students with the appropriate qualities & skills required to fulfil job
responsibilities as chemists in pharmaceutical, chemical and biomedical industries.
To provide enduring atmosphere and encourage students & faculty for research
To train faculty & students in safe &effective handling of chemicals,glassware and analytical instruments& creating awareness about hazardous effects of chemicals.
Teaching Learning Method
Traditional classroom teaching including chalk & board, modern technology-based teaching including projectors & smart boards are employed for dynamic and interactive teaching- learning approach. Also, the hands-on learning experiences is provided through laboratory practical sessions, research projects, and industrial visits. At the chemistry department we provides outcome-based education and training skills on various aspects of drug design using models and computational tools, synthesis by conventional and green chemistry approaches, spectral characterization, and chromatographical evaluation of small molecules. Moreover, students get practical training in handling various analytical instruments including UV-Visible spectrophotometer, FT-IR, Flame photometer, HPLCsystems. Students are being trained in maintaining good laboratory and manufacturing practices, documentation of records according to the industrial requirements. Special emphasis is on quality control and quality assurance at every stage of drug manufacturing process for maintaining high ethical standards.
The department has experienced staff with a wide range of research expertise in drug design and synthesis, computational chemistry, analytical method development& phytochemical studies. Course delivery and teaching style stimulate students to think, understand and apply the theoretical concepts to find an ideal solution for real-time problems related to healthcare. Use of modern tools like computers & AI for simulation studies, interactive platforms are utilised for understanding the basic concepts of biochemistry, analytical & synthetic chemistry. By implementing student-centric approaches, we strive to cultivate a passion for lifelonglearning, professional growth, and innovation among our students along with knowledge & skills.
