Dean Message
Welcome to the K. B. Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research. It is my privilege to serve as Principal for this wonderful Institute and the collection of faculty, staff, students, and alumni that make up the KBIPER family. I invite you to explore the website and learn more about the Institute and our multiple important missions in research, teaching, service, outreach, and practice. You'll find a stunning array of faculty expertise, research and graduate programs of enormous impact, and so much more, all built on a tradition of excellence.
That tradition is very long indeed. The institute celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2010, a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the successes of the past and present and to strive toward new levels of preeminence in the future. Our past is full of "firsts" for first self financed pharmacy college in the state, the first NAAC accreditation, first institute in state to have both NAAC and NBA accreditation, the first institute to get approval for Pharm.D. program and first Drug Information Centre in the Gujarat State. We continue to build on those "firsts" with innovation, creativity, and a true sense of discovery, all aimed, in one way or another, at improving the health and life of the people of state and beyond.
Whether you are a curious visitor, a prospective student, a potential new faculty member, or proud alumni, I encourage you to explore the website or visit us in person. The door is always open.
I invite you to be the important contributor by way of providing positive criticism, moral support and any other way you prefer.
Dr. Shrikalp Deshpande
