The unique step in drug design and research is to prepare dosage forms for the new drugs and developing novel dosage forms for the existing drugs for therapeutic improvement, patient convenience and cost saving.
Pharmaceutics is the discipline of pharmacy which involves study of relationships between drug formulation, delivery, disposition and clinical response of dosages and cosmetics along with their manufacturing processes. The department is equipped with the state of art laboratories, ultra-modern facilities and competitive staff.
Branches of Pharmaceutics include:
Pharmaceutical chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry are disciplines at the intersection of chemistry, where they encompasses synthetic organic chemistry and aspects of natural products and computational chemistry in close combination with chemical biology, enzymology and structural biology, together aiming at the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents.
The allied subjects of Pharmaceutical Chemistry are:
Pharmacology is the branch of medicine deals with the study of drug actionand its toxic effects on biological system.In broad terms, pharmacodynamics discusses the chemicals with biological receptors, and pharmacokinetics discusses the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) of chemicals from the biological systems.Pharmacologists are also involved in molecular modeling of drugs, and the use of drugs as tools to dissect aspects of cell function.This department helps to evaluate the drugs by using animal experimentation which may help to adjust the doses of drugs in humans as well as to know the toxicities of the drug.
The divisions of Pharmacology are:
Pharmacognosy is the study of medicinal drugs derived from plants or other natural sources. Although most Pharmacognostic studies focus on plants and medicines derived from plants, other types of organisms are also regarded as pharmacognostically interesting, in particular, various types of microbes (bacteria, fungi, etc.) and recently various marine organisms.
The core competence areas under Pharmacognosy are Herbal drug standardization, Development of Nano-herbal formulation, Medicinal Plant Tissue Culture, Evaluation of traditional herbal formulation, Isolation and purification of phytoconstituents, development of and nutraceuticals.
The department has a well planted Pharmacognostic Medicinal Garden.
The broad spectrum Pharmacognosy subjects involved are:
