Type of the workshop: National Workshop
The workshop in brief:

The Faculty of Pharmacy, Tishk International University organised a national workshop on 27th March 2021. The aim of National Pharmacy Workshop (NPW) 2021 is to deliver an outstanding program for the exchange of ideas and authoritative views by leading scientists of the pharmaceutical arena, covering the entire spectrum of research in Nanotechnology role in drug discovery and development.

Number of participants: 140

Date and time:  March 27, 2021.
Place: Online

Session topics: 

4 sessions topics:

  • “Overcoming the bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs using nanotechnology approach”.
  • Nanotechnology to improve the efficacy of bioactive phytochemicals.
  • Bioavailability of nanotechnology formulations.
  • Formulation development and evaluation of rotigotine loaded nanoparticles for Parkinson disease via the intranasal route.

Presenters names and affiliations:

  • Dr. Sachn Kumar (Professor Lovely Professional University, India).
  • Dr. Javed Ahmed, Asst Prof at College of Pharmacy, Najran University, KSA.
  • Dr. Sharad Visht, Asst. Prof at Pharmacy Faculty, TIU.
  • Dr. Shadab, Md. Asst. Prof at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, KSA.

Outcome of the workshop:

The speakers let the participants experience one of the techniques they use to engage youth with providing a high-level overview regarding the improvement of efficacy of bioactive molecules from herbal plants. Meanwhile different methods for improving bioavailability in nanotechnology have been discussed. The workshop committee members solicited feedback from participants on the usefulness of the presentations delivered as training tools and how they could benefit organizations beyond other agencies. Overall, the group agreed that such presentations as used in the workshop would be valuable assets to future trainings on nanotechnology for both Tishk University and other organizations.
