Department of Pharmacy

Brief Profile of the Department

The Department of Pharmacy in Tripura University (A Central University) was established in 2011 with the goal of postgraduate education and research training in pharmaceutical sciences- first time in Tripura. The primary objective of the Department of Pharmacy is to develop programs relevant to current global standards and challenges of pharmaceutical education and research. The Department of Pharmacy also endeavors for excellence in research to develop novel therapeutics for contemporary health problems. Master of Pharmacy (M. Pharm., a four-semester full time program) and Ph.D. degrees are offered by the University in various disciplines of pharmaceutical sciences. The programs amalgamate advanced theoretical knowledge with independent research training in the field of pharmaceutical sciences under the supervision of faculty members. Courses in our curriculum emphasize on promoting therapeutic effects of drugs or minimizing toxicity through interdisciplinary pharmaceutical and biomedical approaches. The candidates receive basic and advance knowledge in the areas of medicinal and bioorganic chemistry, biopharmaceutics, modern analytical techniques and structure-based drug research. The courses also emphasize on effective use of modern science databases and scientific writing techniques. The programs are designed to provide professional job opportunities for students in pharmaceutical industry and academia in India and worldwide.
