Post Graduate Diploma in  Pharmaceutical Chemistry

The field of pharmaceutical chemistry arises from the combination of synthetic organic chemistry with pharmacology and medicinal sciences. It encompasses the design, chemical synthesis and development of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), or bio-active molecules. It enables a student to have a detailed knowledge of the chemical aspects of identification, followed by systematic, thorough synthetic alteration of new chemical entities to make them suitable for therapeutic use. It includes synthetic and computational aspects of the study of existing drugs and agents in development in relation to their bioactivities (biological activities and properties), i.e., understanding their structure-activity relationships (SAR). Pharmaceutical chemistry is focused on quality aspects of medicines and aims to assure fitness for purpose of medicinal products.

Pharmaceutical chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of synthesizing new pharmaceuticals. They also improve the processes by which existing pharmaceuticals are made. Pharmaceutical chemists are focused on drug discovery and development and are concerned with the isolation of medicinal agents found in plants, as well as the creation of new synthetic drug compounds. Thus Pharmaceutical chemistry is a versatile and stimulating field as it links many scientific disciplines and allows for collaboration with other scientists in researching and developing new drugs.

The Post Graduate Diploma in Pharmaceutical Chemistry has been structured by experts from the industry themselves and thus comprehensive coverage and understanding of the industry and its functional areas is promised. The goal of the Post Graduate Diploma Programme is to familiarize the participant with the updated theoretical and practical aspects of the Pharmaceutical Chemistry to gain access to this challenging and interesting field.

Future career prospects of Pharmaceutical Chemistry training

Pharmaceutical chemistry offers a wide variety of opportunities in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies. Most chemists use their research skills to formulate, produce, characterize, and analyze new compounds for specific applications. The professionals in the field can also assume regulatory positions like reviewing drug applications at the regulatory bodies.

The pharmaceutical chemists are mainly involved in finding new cures and discovering new molecules through a wide variety of techniques like CADD, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry etc. Many Pharmaceutical chemists start out in the lab and then move on to other laboratory career such as process chemistry, formulation chemistry, quality control or quality assurance. They may also move to nonlaboratory careers such as regulatory affairs, intellectual property (patents), project management, or technology transfer.
