M. Pharm (Phytopharmacy and Phytomedicine)




About Course:

The enchanting field of Phytopharmacy has gained enormous popularity due to promising effectiveness of traditional medicines in various diseases. Further, modern scientific approach towards ethnomedicines have given rise to novel branches like Phytopharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals, Food for Special Medical Purpose and Cosmetics in fields of herbal drug engineering. With these advancements there is a greater need to have a thorough understanding of Novel Facets of Phytopharamcy and Phytomedicines.  The objective of this course is to develop skillsets in the knowledge seekers about the aspects of herbal drug development such as critical variables in phytopharmaceutical development, importance of ancient medicine systems & remedies thereof, extraction, isolation & characterization of phytochemicals, pharmacological evaluation and standardization of herbal formulations, novel approaches and IPR as well as regulatory viewpoints of herbal drugs. It is observed that there is lack of proper guidance regarding critical variable affecting the transformation of traditional herbal formulas in to modern pharmaceutical formulations. Often, there is lack of understanding in terms of how a novel formulation approach and particular analytical technique could be used for herbal drug engineering. A thorough understanding of these factors along with IPR and regulatory viewpoints will help one to device a proper strategy of development of phytopharamceuticals. In this course attention has been given to the fundamental aspects of phytomedicine development with focus on numerous current and future sophisticated analytical techniques as well as biological evaluation methods while keeping the need of industries and regulatory bodies in mind. Therefore, it is hoped that by bringing together known and established facts concerning them, our institute will be able to garner trained human resources for industries working in fields of phytopharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuitcals and related fields. The objective of this course is to fill this gap so that both academicians and professional working in the field could benefit from the same.
