Why Study Pharmaceutical Science?

Why Study Pharmaceutical Science?

The Pharmacy program’s purpose is to provide professionals with the necessary skills, knowledge, and abilities to work in the pharmaceutical industry and to deliver appropriate drug services to patients. The idea of the curriculum is to teach the capacity to create and assess various dosage forms, as well as regulatory and ethical guidelines for pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The B Pharm academic curriculum covers basic principles and developments in pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology, pharmacognosy, and phytomedicines, as well as scientific research updates.

The Department of Pharmacy was formed in 2019 and has been approved by the Pharmacy Council of India in New Delhi. The university has also got recognition by the government of U.P . With highly skilled, experienced, and research-oriented professors, the Department has been a forerunner in the field of pharmacy education. It also awakens students’ inherent strengths and potentials, preparing highly qualified pharmacists who can serve in the pharmacy profession both nationally and internationally in the future.

The department has presented more than 20 research papers in national and international scientific platforms in the last three years, and has published more than 50 research papers. 

 

Maharishi School of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Maharishi School of Pharmaceutical Sciences launched the Maharishi School of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2019 to set a standard in pharmaceutical education. Professional teaching strategies seek to give students a sound foundation and generate pharmacy personnel who can apply their knowledge to improve community health and the healthcare industry. We feel that striking a balance between academic and practical exposure is critical in providing a professional touch to education. It is the degree of exposure to various industrial operations, as well as the exposure to varied industrial activities, that matters in this period of competitiveness.

At Maharishi University of Information Technology, the Maharishi School of Pharmaceutical Sciences has a well-equipped infrastructure with smart classrooms and well-equipped laboratories with modern technology essential for Pharmacy procedures, with easy access for students. We also have herbal gardens, which are rich in medicinally active compounds.

PHARMACEUTICS LABS

There are three pharmaceutics labs in the department, including an AC instrumentation lab and a machine room.

The laboratories have updated machinery for example multi- station Franz diffusion cell assembly , 12 station Tablet compression machine etc.. The goal of these labs is to give aspiring pharmacists hands-on experience in Physical Pharmaceutics, Manufacturing Operations, Pre-formulation Screening Tests, Designing, Evaluation, and Pharmacokinetic Study of solid, liquid, and semisolid dosage forms, as well as Novel Drug Delivery Systems for ocular, nasal, transungual, transmucosal, translabial, transnabhi, soft palatal drug delivery systems, etc.

PHARMACOGNOSY LABS

Autoclaves, BOD Incubators, Microtome Blades, and Laminar Air Flow, among other things, are available at the Pharmacognosy and Biotechnology Labs. The primary goal of these labs is to give undergraduates and research students hands-on experience with techniques such as tissue culture, sterilisation, antibiotic test, microbial screening, microbial sensitivity, and microbial resistance.

PHARMACOLOGY LABS

The department has two Pharmacology Labs containing pharmacological screening tools such as the Rotarod, Pole Climbing Apparatus, Electro-convulsiometer, Eddy’s Hot Plate, Acto-photometer, Spirometer, and Analgesiometer, as well as software for simulating pharmacological trials. 3D models and charts, the human skeleton, histopathology slides, and multimedia devices aid in the study of anatomy and physiology.

HERBAL GARDEN

The Department maintains a freshly established Herbal Garden with many species of medicinal plants to keep up with the changing times in the field of medicinal plants. The students have hands-on experience identifying medicinal plants and herbs, as well as cultivating and collecting them.
