Course programme

Drug discovery research has become much more complex science requiring a multidisciplinary approach. Converging concepts of several disciplines such as molecular biology, chemistry, toxicology, pharmaceutical sciences and computational technology has become more than a trend in education. It has become a necessity for solving real-world problems. This course is designed to teach the new millennium drug discovery science to the pharmacy graduates to become the successful drug discovery scientist in pharmaceutical industry.

The objectives are,


To teach the science and art of "New Millennium Drug Discovery' for faster drug development.

To teach the information management and integration techniques in the field of Biology, Chemistry, Toxicology, Pharmaceutical sciences and Pharmacy practice.
* To integrate diverse information into discovery knowledge by exploiting the advantages of emerging fields like bio-informatics, chemo-informatics, toxico-informatics, pharmacy-informatics, etc


1. The center is equipped to carry out research and provide training in the advanced areas of genomics, proteomics, computational drug discovery techniques including bioinformatics, QSAR, Molecular Docking, pharmacophore mapping, chemoinformatics, computational ADME / Toxicity prediction methods, pharmaceutical informatics and medical informatics.
2. The focus of this centre is on the practical applications of computer aided target identification, validation and drug-design, this centre is quite different from other academic centres where the focus is either on theoretical studies or on development of bioinformatic methods or on chemoinformatic methods.
