Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

About the Department

The subject of Pharmaceutical Chemistry plays a vital role in grooming a student into a true Pharma Professional. A deep knowledge on the design of Newer Chemical Entities, their molecular and bio-isosteric modifications developed to target drugs to the specific targets, elucidation and characterization of compounds, isolation of a bioactive compound from various natural products, QSAR, Docking, combinatorial and microwave techniques are extremely interesting and innovative.
