Department of Pharmaceutics

Pharmaceutics is a core subject of pharmacy education wherein the students learn the technique of developing most pertinent dosage forms or formulations for a drug candidate. The well formulated dosage forms help in achieving the maximum therapeutic effect of the drug without causing side effects. Throughout the course work of B. Pharm., as a part of Pharmaceutics subject; students learn about the basics of the dosage forms such as solutions, suspensions, tablets, capsules, creams, ointments, lotions, patches, films, suppositories etc. These dosage forms are intended to be administered by variety of routes such as oral, topical, mucosal, transdermal and parenteral. The coursework of Pharmaceutics even includes the cosmeceuticals wherein knowledge of formulation and evaluation of cosmetic preparations is imparted. The subject of Pharmaceutics is exclusive to the course of pharmacy and never taught to any medical, paramedical or pure science branches. Hence specialization in this subject is most preferred by the pharmacy graduates.

There is a huge demand in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic industry for the professionals with specialization in Pharmaceutics. Even the biotech industry demands the M. Pharm. –Pharmaceutics candidates for the development of vaccine, monoclonal antibodies and genetically engineered based formulations. Pre-formulation studies, formulation development, formulation manufacturing, regulatory affairs are the key departments of these industries where the master of Pharmaceutics students get employed. Even the government regulatory agencies like CDSCO and state FDAs are the potential employers of the post graduates in Pharmaceutics.

The department of Pharmaceutics at ICP deals with the development of novel dermatological formulations; oral, topical and transdermal film formulations, herbal based preparations, cosmetics and nanoparticulate drug delivery systems. Indira College of Pharmacy provides all the necessary equipment and facilities to prepare and evaluate these formulations. We also facilitate the industrial training and internships for the students to get the real time exposure of the milieu and industrial work culture. The college has signed MOUs (Memorandum of Understanding) with various industries and academic institutes which promote faculty to conduct the sponsored and collaborative research projects. Working on such projects helps the students in honing their technical and professional skills. Based on such projects, faculty have published excellent research papers in peer reviewed journals and filed several patents.

The friendly and encouraging environment of the college coupled with the efficient mentoring and supervision of the dedicated and experienced faculty of the Pharmaceutics department make learning a pleasant and enriching journey for the post graduate students.
