At Himachal institute of pharmaceutical Education and Research, we provide our students with distinguished knowledge and top class facilities to meet the highest benchmarks. We have well experienced and learned faculty, scholastic curriculum, diverse educational exposure and various on-campus facilities which collectively focuses on all round learning experience and rewarding opportunities for the students. Himachal institute of pharmaceutical Education and Research has organized seminar, Conferences, Workshops sponsored by many national level Government funding agencies like DST,SERB,ICMR.Government of India.

Nanotechnology is the fastest-growing technology in the world, and it is also called the Industrial Revolution of the twenty-first century. Many research, development, and manufacturing methods have been used globally to develop better and safer nanomaterials for various applications. Nanotechnology teaches us the critical properties of day-to-day materials and structures. The invention of the scanning tunneling microscope , carbon Nanotubes , and fullerenes laid a path toward nanotechnology because atomic- and molecular-level studies could be performed using the STM and Nanomaterials. Today this technology is employed in various fields such as Engineering, Technology, Applied Sciences, Biomedical, Pharmaceuticals, Food and Agriculture, and Construction Industries. The number of technical articles and patents related to Nanotechnology and Nanoproducts has been continuously increasing for nearly two decades. Within 10 or 15 years, it is expected that the industrial production of nanotechnology will be worth over $1 trillion. Thus, this technology will drastically change science, education, manufacturing, and the lifestyles of people around the world. The aim of seminar Is. to provide a plat form to exchange the research innovations and current affairs. in the field of pharmacy profession. Many students have sound technical Knowledge but lack oral expression, and communication capabilities. This two day seminar is organized with the aim of improving the technical communication skills and research approaches among the students. The conference features plenary sessions which will be delivered by eminent national and international speakers from different disciplines of pharmaceutical area. In addition, there will be invited lectures and sessions delivered by distinguished and young researchers in their respective fields during parallel scientific sessions. The conference will also provide the opportunity to scientists and research scholars from various organizations to put forth their innovative ideas and research findings by means of deliberations, discussions and poster presentations.

The objectives of the proposed conference are:-
•  It will provide a common platform for interaction among the persons from different area of Pharmaceutical sciences.
•  Interaction between the faculty, students and eminent personalities.
•  It will help to impart new knowledge in the field of Drug discovery.
•  Research collaboration between the Institute and Industry.
