AICTE Sponsored Quality Improvement Programme 2011 on Nanotechnology Based Drug Delivery Systems
BIRLA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
The Birla Institute of Technology was established in the year 1955 at Mesra, Ranchi, Jharkhand by the Philanthropist – Industrialist Mr. B. M. Birla with a vision to establish a world – class institution to cater Engineering, Technology, Pharmaceutical, Management and other allied sciences. The institute over last decade ranked well within top ten of the best Technical Universities of the country. The Institute offers Undergraduate, Postgraduate as well as Doctoral Programs.
DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES
The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Birla Institute of Technology established in 1972 is playing a leading role in imparting Pharmaceutical education in the country. It has B. Pharm., M. Pharm. & Ph.D. programs recognized by P.C.I., A.I.C.T.E., U.G.C. and D.S.T. The Department has been recognized as Center for AICTE sponsored Quality Improvement Programs. The Department has in-house facilities for analysis of drugs with sophisticated instruments such as HPLC, HPTLC, UV, IR, CHN, GC etc. It has Medicinal Plants Garden spread over 10 acres of land with well equipped extraction unit for volatile oils. Department has animal house approved by CPCSEA. Department is actively involved in research encompassing Synthetic Chemistry, Natural Products’ Chemistry, Novel Drug Delivery System, Herbal Standardization and Formulations, besides Computer Aided Drug Design. Computational chemistry lab is rich with drug design and discovery software.

AICTE SPONSORED QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMME
Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences has been organizing the Quality Improvement Programme for last five years. QIP 2011 would be fifth in this series.
QIP 2011 comprise of three programmes of two weeks duration each.
1. Pharmaceutics Division would focus upon Nanotechnology Based Drug Delivery Systems. Nanoparticles hold tremendous potential in effective drug delivery system in the modern era. During QIP, lecture / discussion will be held on recent developments in nanotechnology with special reference to its vital role in drug delivery system. To achieve efficient drug delivery, it is important to understand the interactions of nanomaterials with the biological environment, targeting cell-surface receptors, drug release, multiple drug administration, stability of therapeutic agents and molecular mechanisms of cell signaling involved in pathobiology of the disease under consideration.
