Department of Pharmaceutics

The Department of Pharmaceutics, considered as the oldest and largest Department in the School of Pharmacy, was developed at the beginning of the foundation of the School of Pharmacy as the "Department of Manufacturing and Application of Medicine" and was renamed to " Department of Industrial Pharmacy" and  further to "Department of Pharmaceutics" in recent years. In addition to educational activities, this department has been considered as the first pharmaceutical manufacturing factory in Iran as the "Pharmaceutical Incubator" located at North Kargar Avenue. Historically, the Pharmaceutical Incubator was pioneer in formulation, manufacturing and supplying of all required dosage forms in the hospitals of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, and this promotion was continued during the imposed war between Iran and Iraq for supplying medicine.
 
Till now, several departments including the Department of Clinical Pharmacy, the Department of Food and Drug Control, the Department of Nanotechnology and Biomaterials and also the Department of Biopharmacy and Pharmacometrics were derived from the Department of Pharmaceutics.
