Pharmaceutical Chemistry

About Pharmaceutical Chemistry Specialization

Pharmaceutical Chemistry is the heart of pharmacy course which aims to provide the necessary theoretical concepts and practical exposure in design, synthesis and characterization of novel chemical entities (NCE’s). A major in pharmaceutical chemistry will give hands on experience in synthetic route design and its implementation.
