Grant to tackle challenges associated with drug molecules during formulation in pharma industry
An assistant professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at Jamia Hamdard has been awarded the prestigious RSC Research Fund Grant 2020 funded by Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, UK.
Jamshed Haneef will use the grant for research work at the institute’s School of Pharmaceutical Education and Research.
The grant will be used to address the challenges associated with the drug molecules during formulation in the pharmaceutical industry where Haneef’s work will focus on modulating the mechanical properties of drugs with particular changes in its molecular arrangement using a crystal engineering approach with the study that would aid in the early stages of drug development and by selecting the correct solid form for formulation development.
“Jamia Hamdard congratulates Jamshed Haneef, assistant professor, department of pharmaceutical chemistry, School of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (SPER), for being been awarded the prestigious RSC Research Fund Grant 2020 worth £ 3500 funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, UK,” the institute said in a statement.
The Royal Society of Chemistry Research Fund supports members with limited access to research funds to start new projects, particularly those in developing countries and early career researchers. It connects scientists with each other and society as a whole, so they can do their best work and make discoveries and innovations happen. It publishes new research and develops, recognises and celebrates professional capabilities by bringing people together with new ideas and new partnerships.
Haneef completed his MPharm from Jamia Hamdard and received the University Gold Medal. He pursued PhD as DST-Inspire Fellow at the Panjab University, Chandigarh. He has also been awarded with UGC Start-up Research Grant in 2019 for improving the biopharmaceutical properties of drugs used in Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus-associated metabolic syndrome.
