Department of Pharmacy

Pharmacy has grown as a separate branch of science with its wings spreading into several branches of Drug Discovery. It is involved in all the steps pertaining to a drug, from its discovery, development, action, safety, formulation, use, quality control, packaging, storage, marketing, etc. Considering the above facts, pharmacy professionals can be considered as ''drug specialist''. Currently, the profession of pharmacy has transformed into a heart for the ''Universal Healthcare'' with multidisciplinary and multifaceted curriculum.

Following are the prime areas in which pharmacy professionals are in great demand:
• New Drug Discovery Research (NDDR): Discovering a new drug has assumed prime importance in the post-GATT era.

• Process Development (P&D): One of the important areas in bulk drugs industry is developing viable processes for the manufacture of drugs and intermediates for their commercial production.

• Formulation & Development (F&D): Formulation development and research occupies the core of any pharma company’s R&D activity. Novel drug delivery system (NDDS) research is the key area, which is developing rapidly.

• Clinical trials, Bioequivalence studies, Toxicological Studies: These are some of the areas of clinical research which are in high demand as they are involved in the systematic evaluation of potential drug substances prior to getting them approved by the authorities.

Taking into account the above facts which form part and parcel of being one of the Centre's objectives of capacity building in the field of Medicine and Pharmacy, SASTRA has initiated M.Pharm., programme in three branches namely, Pharmacology, Pharmaceutics and Pharmacoinformatics from the ensuing academic year 2006-07.
