Faculty of Pharmacy

OverviewResearch Team

Research is the process of generating new knowledge, ideas, and technology in supporting the future success of society and humanity. For the university, research underpins relevant and modern curriculums, education and training, fostering academic and professional excellence. The Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Puthisastra is committed to conducting research which will have a regional, national and international impact, and contribute to a fast-growing world of science and technology.

The Faculty of Pharmacy is engaged in a wide array of pharmacognostic and pharmaceutical research. The pharmacognostic research covers the domains of phytochemical analyses, ethnobotanical surveys, standardization of medicinal plants, and phytotherapeutic studies. The pharmaceutical research includes drug development, drug formulation and quality control of drugs.

Currently the Faculty of Pharmacy is developing an UP-Herbarium, Plant Tissue Culture Center, UP-Botanical Garden, UP-Medicinal Plant Museum, UP-Natural Products Library and UP-Bacterial Cell Bank with the purpose of further enhancing the field of pharmacognosy and drug formulation in Cambodia.
