Indian pharma is now accelerating its pace towards interdisciplinary research for medicines to combat diseases. In this regard several collaborations for the integration of knowledge from different academic disciplines to address common complex problems that cannot be solved by any individual researcher from a single area of research are already underway.

Even as the Union government is supporting research and innovation for pharmaceuticals, there are several interdisciplinary research efforts that are going on like the Bengaluru-based Institute for Drug Delivery and Biomedical Research (IDBR) which is a non-profit research organization with an objective to foster research in the field of drug delivery and biomedical sciences. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru and the Brunel University, London are looking for long-term research and educational collaboration to strengthen scientific expertise in the country.

Dr Md. Salahuddin, principal, Al-Ameen College of Pharmacy and general secretary, Karnataka State Pharmacy College Teachers Association, noted that interdisciplinary approach of pharmacology, pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmacognosy is introduced into undergraduate and post graduate level following the new syllabus of the Pharmacy Council of India.

According to Dr M Vijay Kumar, associate professor, department of pharmacology, Lovely Professional University, Punjab, “As we grow, the complication in health also growing rapidly and there is great need to develop the strategy to combat the effect of various diseases with multifocal damage which is possible only through Interdisciplinary research.”

Now as the General Chair, ICRAHS -2023 to be held from April 14 to 15, 2023, Dr Kumar said the theme of ICRAHS-2023 is Interdisciplinary Research: A Key to Transform Health Care. We believe that this theme will help in the dissemination of new knowledge, best practices, and research innovations in the health sciences field. The conference will feature keynote speeches, plenary sessions, and poster presentations by national and internationally renowned researchers and experts in the field of health sciences.

Interdisciplinary research is a collective approach to find a solution for a problem or scientific query that involves Hence it refers to a combined approach of two or more distinct academic disciplines or fields of study to generate new insights and solutions for a common research problem. “Our speaker gallery includes renowned scientists and Professors from Cardiff UK, Leeds UK and premiere institutes from India like CSIR, IISc, ICMR, DRDO and IPC,” he stated.
