Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Analysis

Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Analysis

The mission of the Department of Chemistry is to conduct basic research in medicinal & analytical chemistry as it relates to drug discovery, to teach these principles in the professional and graduate programs, and to provide service to the scientific community.

Department of Chemistry is dedicated in research and education at the interface of the chemical and biological sciences. The department provides the education and training to students to make them creative and independent investigators for positions in academic, industrial or government settings. Toward this end the graduate curriculum is an interdisciplinary composition of courses covering the major areas of contemporary medicinal and analytical chemistry.

The areas of research include, drug discovery, organic synthesis of medicinal agents, natural products chemistry, topical drug delivery, prodrugs, peptide chemistry, molecular modeling, drug metabolism and molecular toxicology.

The dept. has excellent facilities for research in the major areas of medicinal chemistry and equipped with sophisticated analytical instruments like UV, HPLC and FTIR. The dept. provides exhaustive knowledge of analytical technology including bioanalysis and also the analytical and bioanalytical method development and validation, stability studies, impurity profiling, pharmacokinetic studies, study on drug interaction and poison analysis.
