To achieve this goal, the department regularly arranges In-plant training, seminars and other health related activities. Moreover, we have sufficient laboratory facilities for advanced research in Natural Product Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Microbiology, Pharmaceutical Technology and Pharmaceutics. The establishment of a research laboratory on Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Pharmacology is underway. We are proud of our academic staff as they are well trained and have got Ph.D degree with research experiences in various disciplines of Pharmacy from developed countries (USA, Japan, UK, Australia, South Korea etc). They are also engaged in several national and international scientific research projects.
