Deepak Kapoor

Deepak Kapoor has more than 15 years of teaching, research and industrial experience. His key areas of research are development and optimization of novel drug delivery systems such as nanoparticles, nanoemulsions, niosomes, liposomes, ethosomes, implantable systems, topical and transdermal systems.  

He qualified GPAT and received PhD (2012) in Pharmaceutical Sciences from UGC-CAS, UIPS, Panjab University, Chandigarh and was awarded SRF from CSIR and research Fellowship from IPCA Labs Ltd.

Along with more than 40 national and international publications in the form of a monograph series book, book chapters, research and review articles, Deepak Kapoor has also filed numerous patents on the development of novel pharmaceutical formulations. Not only has he completed a research consultancy project funded by DRDO but has a utility and design patent granted to his credit as well. At present, he is working on consultancy projects in the industry and academia and conducting research in Pharmaceutical Sciences. 

He received an international travel award from CSIR to present a paper at Barcelona, Spain, and by ACS to attend a workshop at Melbourne, Australia. He is the chairman of IAEC, Shoolini University. He has guided three PhD and more than 15 M Pharm students. 

Deepak Kapoor has been an AMRSC with the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK, and is a life member of the Indian Pharmacy Graduates Association (IPGA) and Fellow of the Society of Life Sciences (FSLSc).
