MOU between the Centre of Chemometrics, Bristol university, UK and SRM College of Pharmacy

The symbiotic alliance between SRM College of Pharmacy, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) and The centre of Chemometrics, Bristol University, UK was executed and authorized on February 28, 2008.

The MoU had built a new space in enchancing the research activities in Chemometrics and moved to a greater extent. The collaboration developed a strong liaison with many scientific promoters in Chemometrics around the world.

The chemometrical theme on Pharmaceutical material Analysis and chromatography seem to be one of the progressive ladders in the quality control segment. A number of approaches many based on alternating least squares that combine chemometrics modeling of spectra with kinetic modeling had been investigated .The multi-probe area involving monitoring reactions using several simultaneous spectroscopic and chromatographic techniques in real time is likely to be one of the significant growth the next couple of years.

PROGRESS
To build and forge collaborative research initiatives in the path of upgrading the knowledge of Chemometrics in the field of Chemometrics, SRM college of Pharmacy organized an International conference on perspectives in Chemometrics in April 2011 "ICOPIC 2011"in association with CEERI, Chennai and Bristol University, UK.

The three day international conference was held at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Kattankulathur, and it witnessed four hundred people as audience which included student, researchers, academicians and industrialist.

One day pre-conference was part of the conference, held on April 8, 2011 was mentored by Mr. Suresh kumar B.V. from Camo industries pvt Ltd Topics covered in the preconference seminar included

  • Chemometrics overview
  • Data imports
  • Multivariate projection methods :introduction
  • Principle compound analysis
  • PLS regression
  • Data preprocessing techniques
  • Calibration ,validation and prediction
  • Tutorial execution
  • Online predictions for quality control applications
  • Experimental design Introduction- DOE
  • Scanning design and optimization design.

International speakers were invited to discuss and disseminate their views.

The conference took many plenary sessions, scientific and oral presentations from various institutions around the world
The oral/poster presentations were prized with "Unscrambler software" sponsored by camo Industries Pvt Ltd worth 4 lakhs for 2 winners .

MoU between CEERI and SRM College of Pharmacy

Purpose/Objectives/Goals:

The purpose of this MOU is to establish a framework for research collaboration activities between SRM College of Pharmacy and CEERI. In general, the participants intend the focus on Chemometrics.

Background:

CEERI is a well established research Institute located at CSIR Complex. The Institute comprises experts in Chemometrics, who evolved in organizing periodical seminars and conferences involving planetary lectures by experts from India and abroad.

SRM College of Pharmacy has well established research laboratories and is involved in various research activities like formulation and development, clinical studies and analytical method development using recent instrumental techniques.

Benefits:

  • Our research partnership brings together our common aspirations, distinctive talents and ceaseless quest for excellence.
  • As humans, we want to know, we are driven to explore, and we are excited by the uncertain twists and turns as well as the unexpected results that are part of the intellectual adventure.
  • As we traverse this journey of learning and discovery, we are also motivated and driven by a sense of mission and service, creating new knowledge, using knowledge to innovate and thereby bringing tangible benefits to our institutions.

Responsibilities:

Participants of SRM College of Pharmacy are currently involved in analytical method development of anti hypertensives and anti diabetic drugs and the development of floating tablets for extended release of drugs.

Participants of CEERI will involve in interpretation of results using statistical tools of chemometrics principles.

Both institutes will also take part in raising funds through different government agencies.
