SRMS COLLEGE OF PHARMACY IS PROVIDING FOLLOWING FACILITIES FOR RESEARCH IN PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES:
BRANCHES OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCE
Pharmaceutical science basically has four branches, around which many of the subjects are framed. These branches are:
Pharmaceutical chemistry and analysis
These are related scientific disciplines at the intersection of chemistry and pharmacy dealing with designing and developing pharmaceutical drugs, and also with analytical topics that help develop basics about quality management of raw materials and finished pharmaceuticals.
It’s the discipline of pharmacy that deals with all facets of the process of turning a new chemical entity into a medication able to be safely and effectively used by patients in the community.
It’s the study of how chemical substances interact with living systems. The field encompasses study of drug composition, drug properties, interactions, toxicology, and desirable effects that can be used in therapy of diseases. Other subjects, viz., anatomy and physiology, and pathophysiology are a prelude to pharmacology, helping the students to develop the knowledge of intricate functioning, and make-up of human body and disease processes.
It’s the study of medicinal products in their crude or unprepared form. It includes the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources.
ADDITIONAL SPECIALIZED SUBJECTS
Additional specialized subjects, viz., industrial management and pharmaceutical jurisprudence help orienting the students to understand basic technicalities related to the control of regulating authorities across the world over research manufacture and distribution of pharmaceuticals and also train the students about appropriate management skills required to skilfully carry out these operations, and the involved mathematical calculations.
ADDITIONAL ELECTIVE INTEGRATED PROJECTS
Additional elective integrated projects are a part of the curriculum to help students understand using knowledge from different subjects to carry out pharmaceutical research.
The department is equipped with the following Labs
The college has a well equipped animal house, which is approved by CPCSEA, Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Govt. of India, for experiments to be carried out by students in their research work.
Herbal garden contains large number of medicinal plants. The medicinal plants are used for practical demonstration of the students. Various medicinal plants and its parts are used as medicines.
With an objective of inculcating the habit of research and innovation, the faculty of Pharmacy is engaged in the production of certain pharmaceutical dosage form, such as ointments, capsules, tablets etc. on a small scale.
Pharmacist day is celebrated on 15th September of every year. All the students make their oral and poster presentations. Best pharmacist is awarded to a student from final year students.
