The Indian and global pharmaceutical research scenario is progressing at a very fast pace. To remain competitive in this changing environment, there is an increasing demand of pharmacy professionals who can face the new challenges. The SCOP has been established to train the students so that they meet the current challenges. We are also planning to start a research center for developing excellent research facilities for the benefit of the students and faculty. I welcome you to SCOP, the institute which blends quality pharmaceutical education with industrial interaction for professional development to provide you and opportunity to expand your horizon of knowledge and explore new frontiers of interest. I am sure that with support of visionary management, qualified and research-oriented faculty members, and students we will achieve our goals.Best Wishes for future pharmacy professionals.
