Clinical courses


Clinical research courses

The Himachal Pharmacy College was established in the year 2014 at the beautiful, peaceful and full of greenery location in Solan Dist Himachal Pradesh.The institute is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Pharmacy Council of India (PCI), New Delhi and recognized by the Himachal Pradesh Technical University, Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh. The institute is housed in sprawling lush green campus with an imposing building and most conducive atmosphere for academic excellence. The state-of-the-art infrastructure and instructional facilities of the institute includes well- equipped laboratories, voluminous library and spacious lecture halls.  Himachal Pharmacy College is amongst the top ranking institutes in Himachal Pradesh. The Institute has grown impressively in both size and reputation and has become the preferred choice for many among all other self-financing institutes. At Himachal Pharmacy College 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.

Nuclear medicine is a medical speciality that involves the application of small amounts of radioactive materials known as radiopharmaceuticals, for the diagnosis and treatment of disease without causing any physiological effect. After realizing the tremendous impact of radiopharmaceuticals and to provide the right platform to unveil the novel frontiers in radiopharmaceutical this seminar is planned. It is a competitive subject in the global scenario, to provide proper direction and to channelize regulatory and clinical aspects of radiopharmaceuticals. Nuclear medicine and radiopharmaceuticals make dynamic, noninvasive studies and therefore are frequently used in the evaluation and development of new drug delivery systems. Nuclear medicine is returning to its origin by studying more and more metabolic signals using new positron or single-photon-emitting radiopharmaceuticals. The history of nuclear medicine over the past 50 years highlights the strong link between investments in chemistry and the development of radionuclides and radiolabeled compounds. In fact, one can trace the major advances in nuclear medicine directly to research in chemistry. Radiopharmacology is radiochemistry applied to medicine and thus the pharmacology of radiopharmaceuticals (medicinal radiocompounds, that is, pharmaceutical drugs that are radioactive). Radiopharmaceuticals are used in the field of nuclear medicineas radioactive tracers in medical imaging and in therapy for many diseases. The fruitful integration of therapeutic drugs into nanoparticles with diagnostic agents referred to as radio-labeled theranostic nanopartides (imaging and therapy) has now become handy to medical practioners in the treatment of a variety of diseases.

National Seminar on

Recent trends in Radiopharmaceuticals in Drug Discovery -Quality, Safety and Regulatory Perspective

Date : 12-13th September, 2019

Radiopharmaceuticals utilized as Diagnostic and helpful specialists. The principle assemblage of these mixes is used effectively as the radiotracers to analyze the unhealthy tissues in a body. Radiopharmaceuticals is a specialized practice area in pharmacy that involves compounding and dispensing radiopharmaceuticals to be used in various nuclear medicine procedures.  As same as radiology, nuclear medicine is a fantastic and very advancing tool for assessing physiological function, as opposed to only structure and anatomy. Radiopharmaceuticals are radio labeled drugs used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Due to the radioactive nature of this group, it has been produced as magisterial product and used locally for years. Today, still marketing authorization is not required for the local usage of some of these products. In 2000, the Food and Drug Agency (FDA) obliged Radiopharmaceutical production facilities for licensing and good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliance. After this, the marketing authorization for radiopharmaceuticals became mandatory.
