    Industrial Visit of Sardar Patel College To National Institute Of Pharmaceutical Education And Research(NIPER)-HYD

    The industrial visit to NIPER Hyderabad has been fixed for 9th February, 2024 from 11am onwards. Prof. Nanduri Srinivas, Head, Dept of Chemical Sciences, has been the person of contact for all the communication with our college. A total of twenty eight students of M.Sc I and I years, along with five faculty members visited NIPER-Hyderabad on 9th February 2024.

    Dr. Neelima, HoD, Chemisty, Sardar Patel college, arrived at the venue by 10:15AM in order to interact with the concerned faculty Dr. Jitendra Madan, HoD of Pharmaceutics department assigned for the purpose and to know about the planning of the tour, before the actual visit begins. There are four departments at NIPER, Hyderabad viz. Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Chemical Sciences, Pharmacology, and toxicology. The students and faculty arrived at the venue by 10:50AM Dr. Jitendra Madan, received and guided the students to be seated in one of their classrooms. He then introduced other faculty members and research scholars to the students and briefed them about the institution. The students were divided into three groups, led by few research scholars like Mr. Srikanth and Mr. Harshil at NIPER to take the group on tour around the institution.

    Students and faculty members were able to interact with research scholars and eminent staff and also learn about vast instrumentation facility that includes Infra Red spectrophotometer, UV spectrophotometer, NMR, Scanning Electron Microscope, dissolution tanks, IR pellet maker, HPLC, GC, rotavapors, fumehoods, icemaking machines, and invivo and in vitro labs.

    Weighing instruments that could weigh upto 0.001 micrograms, that cost saround 8lakhs were seen at one of the research labs. This weighing machine is especially used for weighing the impurities in a drug. Dr. Nandkumar took the team around their animal facility at NIPER, which provides for the in vivo studies. The animal facility procures transgenic animals from London, UK. The facility maintains utmost cleanliness and follows Indian or British Pharmacopia guidelines for animal care, as per the need.

    Towards the closing, the HOD, chemical sciences Dr. Nanduri invited the faculty members to his cabin, where the team discussed about fostering a cordial relationship between NIPER and Sardar Patel College for being in continuous relationship and goodwill in future for useful intellectual inputs from NIPER and to organize industrial visits, extension lectures, summer internships etc. Also present during the discussion were other academicians cum researchers Dr. Madhavi and Dr. Vinay.
