H.K. College of Pharmacy, launched “H K Knowledge Base” and a new department, “Scientific Cell” as innovative concepts at institution level on 7th August 2010.
Scientific Cell as a separate department is a new concept and not a necessary requirement of any educational controlling body like PCI, AICTE, DTE or University.
The Cell would focus to enhance the scientific activities in the institute among the students as well as the teaching staff. It would guide students in preparing for publications, help in identifying newer research areas, keep the updated knowledge of recent advances in Pharma research field, and sourcing funds for Research & Development through various Scientific Bodies.
“H K Knowledge Base” is a platform to exchange knowledge among students, teachers and professional experts. The platform would be used for presenting seminars, workshops, training programmes to the students and faculty. The training programs would include advances in Pharmaceutical sciences, carrier guidance, management skills and personality development to bring about complete grooming of the students to make them a Pharmacy Professional. HK Knowledge Base would act as conduit to develop and enrich the minds of the young pharmacists
H K College of Pharmacy would like to extend this platform to Pharmacy students of other colleges as well.
The Platform was inaugurated with the presentation by the HKCP faculty, Mr. Manoj Gadhwal and Mr. Ajit Wankhede on ‘Pharma Career Guidance’. The motto of seminar was about the career opportunity for pharmacy graduate.
Till date more than 18 such seminars and training programs have been presented which included many eminent speakers like Mrs. Rajashri Oza, Director, Raaj Global Pharma Regulatory Affairs and Mrs. Neelakshi Radhakrishnan, Chief Executive Officer, Empower Finishing School, Mr.Tamojit Roy, Dr. Nimita Limaye, VP and Global Head, SIRO Clinpharm Pvt. Ltd, Mr. Vinayak Kamat, GeeBee Education Pvt. Ltd., etc.
Apart from this we have also organized a one day national seminar in 2011 i.e “Campus to Corporate” and “Recent trends in pharmaceutical technology” in 2012 in H. K. Campus.
This initiative would promote the basic, fact finding research at the institute level and also add upon the possibilities of extending the research platform to industry
