A career in the pharmaceutical sciences is full of opportunities. Mentioned below are some of the options a pharmacy professional can venture into:
R & D: The pharmacy industry is one such industry that thrives on research and development. For this option, B. Pharm and M. Pharms are highly in demand for research of new drugs, process development, formulation, development, clinical trials and Toxicological Studies.
Analysis and Testing: Analysis and testing go hand in hand with this industry specially in order to maintain a proper Quality control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA). For the same highly skilled staff is required by companies to handle sensitive analytical dealings and sophisticated equipment.
Production and Manufacturing: the options of working in production and manufacturing are huge. One can start his/ her own venture or work for someone. Professionals for production and manufacturing are not only required by biotechnological products, surgical dressings, medical devices, equipment, ayurvedic/ homeopathic / unani medicines, veterinary medicine, etc are also the requirement for the production of cosmetics, soaps, toiletries and dental products.
Marketing: The Pharmaceuticals sales and marketing is considered to be a highly technical arena and hence one of the best when it comes to perks.
Hospitals: Although it might be a trend of the US or Canada, but it is one that seem to be setting in India as well. The pharmacists in the hospitals are the best informed individuals for prescribing a drug. Mostly in western countries, the diagnosis is made by the Doctors but the pharmacists decide the medicines and their dosage. Therefore, Pharmacy graduates have important role and can earn attractive remuneration and can occupy strategic positions.
Regulatory Bodies: There are bodies that control and regulate medicines. FDA is the regulatory body that deals with governing and implementing the rules and regulations for the Drug and Pharmaceutical industry. The post of Drug Inspector, Asst. Drug Controller, Deputy Drug Controller, Drug Controller of state and finally D.C. I. (Drug Controller of India) is an option one can aspire for.

|1||Development, optimization and characterization of microemulsion based transdermal gel of Ramipril||Jalpa Sagrambhai Bavlia||M. Pharm Sem-IV||Dr. Anjali Patel||Microemulsion based gels possessgained much popularity because in the recentera, as they offers the advantages of bothemulsions and gels while having good patientacceptability. Because of its non-greasy nature,it can be easily applied to the skin as compared to othertopical formulations such as creams, ointments which arevery much thick, greasy and require excess rubbing.|
|2||Application of quality by design for the development of solid emulsifying system of racecadotri||Grishma Partapsingh Dalal||M. Pharm Sem-IV||Dr. Kevin Garala||The self-emulsifying system is an isotropic mixture of oils and surfactants with or without cosolvents, which spontaneously forms an oil-in-water nanoemulsion upon gentle agitation with water. Upon its introduction into aqueous media, it forms fine oil-in-water emulsions with only gentle agitation such as GI motility, because the free energy required to create a new surface between the oil and water is lower than the entropy change that favors dispersion|
|3||Development of co-processes excipients for fast dissolving tablets of carvedilol by multivariate analysis and QbD||Bansari Mukeshbhai Joshi||M. Pharm Sem-IV||Dr. Biswajit Basu||Co-processing excipient is an excipients mixture containing more than one excipient and not prepared by simple physical mixing. These materials are formulated with co-crystallization, co-grinding, co-precipitation, spray drying and common solvent evaporation techniques.|
