Pharmaceutics Division

Drug Delivery is the major thrust area of Pharmaceutics department, which is a method of administering an active pharmaceutical ingredient to achieve a therapeutic effect in humans or animals through various routes of administration. Drug delivery technologies help to modify drug release profile , absorption, distribution and elimination for the benefit of improving drug efficacy, safety as well as patient convenience and compliance.
The goal of drug formulation and delivery is to administer a drug at a therapeutic concentration to a particular site of action for a specified period of time.
to a particular site of action for a specified period of time. Current efforts in the area of drug delivery includes the development of formulations such as immediate release dosage forms, Modified release drugs like sustained release , novel drug delivery systems and targeted drug delivery systems.The topics in which the department is currently focusing are given as under:

  • Microspheres/microparticles for sustained drug delivery
  • Biodegradable polymers in drug delivery
  • Targeted drug delivery to brain
