Excellent arrangements, facilities and faculties are beyond expectations. Never seen such institute. Students are lucky who are here to make their career.
“Better drugs for better therapy” has always been a motto of medicinal chemists. Medicinal chemist plays central role in the identification of lead molecules, lead optimization, and organic synthesis which include synthesis on new compounds for the disease under investigation or development of new synthetic procedure of existing compounds. With an aim to bring expertise in future pharmacy graduates, the ISFCP, Moga started Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry in 2006. The department is constituted with three organic-chemistry synthesis labs, research labs, polymer chemistry lab and instrument lab. All the labs are equipped with the modern research facilities. To tune the students with the current and future drug discovery scenario, a full functional molecular modeling and pharmacoinformatics lab was also started in 2008. The molecular modeling lab provides facilities for ligand based as well as structure based drug design and drug discovery.
Since its inception in 2006, the department flourished under the supervision of leading scientist and academicians like Prof. K. L. Dhar (Former Scientist and HOD, Department of Natural Products, IIIM Jammu), Prof. O. P. Suri (Former Scientist, IIIM Jammu) and Prof. T. R. Bhardwaj (Former Prof. UIPS, Panjab University, Chandigarh). The department is touching new horizons under the mentorship of Prof. T. R. Bhardwaj (HOD of Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry). His in-depth understanding of the subject, exceptionally hard working and cherished attitude has always motivated the students and young researchers.
