Pharmaceutics is concerned with the strategies by which biologically active compounds are presented to the body so as to elicit an optimal response. Included are the design, formulation, preparation and testing of drug-delivery systems. There are two major areas of emphasis found in the current research in the Department of Pharmaceutics at Mahathi College of Pharmacy.
In course work, emphasis is placed on fundamentals underlying these subject areas.The Undergraduate programme (B.Pharm) trains the students in pharmaceutical technology, Pharmaceutical dosage forms, and advances in Drug delivery system.
Qualified, dedicated faculty members of this department are always keen to show their talents by way of technical lectures, innovations in teaching and tutorials for making skilled, better and effective practical knowledgeble Pharmaceutical Technologists in order to build up good citizens in future.
The Department of Pharmaceutics at Mahathi College of Pharmacy offers students the opportunity to pursue a program of study that is directed toward meeting the individual career objectives in the area of Pharmaceutical Expertise. Students are provided with one of the most dynamic programs in the area of Pharmaceutical product discovery and development.
The department of pharmaceutics is expertise in research areas such as ocular drug delivery systems, targeted drug delivery system, mucoadhesive drug delivery system and use of natural polymers as pharmaceutical excipients. The department has made of significant contribution to the research field in terms of research publication and collaborative project works.
