Medicinal Chemistry


The Department of Medicinal Chemistry offers a two-year M.S. (Pharm.) Med. Chem. program since its inception in 2008. There are currently 20 seats available which are filled through NIPER-JEE conducted every year.

The Department of Medicinal Chemistry is actively involved in the drug design research programme which includes multidisciplinary research in various aspects of drug synthesis. Research in medicinal chemistry requires an in-depth knowledge of synthetic chemistry along with focus on information about drug-receptor interactions. The students pursuing M. S. (Pharm.) degree are exposed towards fundamental and practical knowledge of design and synthesis of pharmaceutically active compounds.

The faculty in the department are involved in research focus on identification of novel chemotherapeutic agents for various diseases like cancer, malaria, tuberculosis and other inflammatory diseases.
