School of Basic Pharmaceutical and Toxicological Sciences


Research in pharmaceutics involves all aspects of design, development, and evaluation of effective dosage forms/delivery systems, and entails one or more interdisciplinary areas that include physical pharmacy, pharmaceutical analysis, drug delivery, biopharmaceutics, and pharmacokinetics.

Research in these areas offers interdisciplinary framework and provides comprehensive programs of course work leading to a Ph.D. degree. The areas of specialization within pharmaceutics may range from strongly physicochemical to highly biological in orientation. The overall objective of our program is to educate and train individuals capable of conducting independent research with specialized knowledge in one of the above areas.
