The department of pharmaceutical chemistry is concerned with the drug design and synthesis of biologically active molecules. Our research is focused to gain new chemical molecules that could enable the discovery of new pharmaceuticals or optimizing already known structures of drugs, thereby expanding the portfolio of chemical drugs.
We perform the following activities in our department:
- Synthesis of the drug: It involves training the students to synthesize drugs which will help them in the R&D department in the future to synthesize novel drugs.
- Chemical analysis: Analytical estimation of known and existing drugs which will be helpful for the students in quality control and quality assurance in pharmaceutical industries.
- Biochemistry: It trains the students to carryout biochemical analysis by various advanced techniques.
