Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Pharmaceutical chemistry are disciplines at the intersection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological specialties, where they are involved with design, chemical synthesis, testing, identification, purification and development for market of pharmaceutical agents, or bio-active molecules (drugs). At the biological interface, medicinal chemistry combines to form a set of highly interdisciplinary sciences, setting its organic, physical, and computational emphases alongside biological areas such as biochemistry, molecular biology and human medicine; these, with project management, statistics, and pharmaceutical business practices, systematically oversee altering identified chemical agents such that after pharmaceutical formulation, they are safe and efficacious, and therefore suitable for use in treatment of disease.

The department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry covers the following courses/area of specializations stretched over 5 years/10 semesters of Pharm. D program.

  1. Pharmaceutical Chemistry – I (Organic Chemistry)
  2. Pharmaceutical Chemistry – II (Biochemistry)
  3. Pharmaceutical Chemistry – III (Pharmaceutical Analysis)
  4. Pharmaceutical Chemistry – IV (Medicinal Chemistry)
