Pharmaceutics

Pharmaceutics department was started in 2011. Successfully completed 3 years .Our  students are doing projects in novel drug delivery systems. Pharmaceutics department has published 12 research papers in these 3 years. This department is having the eqipments such as Probe sonicator, Ultracentrifuge, Tablet Punching machines (2), Disintigration apparatus, dissolution Apparatus (2),  for carrying research in conventional dosage forms and as well as novel drug delivery systems. UV spectrophotometer (3) HPLC, TLC, Cooling centrifuge, Orbitory shakers, FTIR are purchased for the characterization and evaluatiuon of the formulations. Department is having 2 Associate Professors and 4 Assistant Professors for an efficient teaching.
