1.Workshop on QSAR – drug design tools and drawing of chemical structure at BK Mody Government Pharmacy College, Rajkot.
A lecture-cum-hands on training session on ‘QSAR- drug design tools and chemical structure drawing’ was conducted by Dr. Pankaj Kapupara, Associate Professor, School of Pharmacy, RK University, at BK Mody Government Pharmacy College, Rajkot on 21st July, 2017. The session provided theoretical and practical aspect of QSAR in drug design. The session covered QSAR software overview and development of QSAR model using multiple linear regressions.
2.Expert lecture on Woodward- Fischer rules for UV Spectroscopy at Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Saurashtra University.
An expert lecture on “Woodward- Fischer rules for UV Spectroscopy” was delivered by Dr. Pankaj Kapupara at Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Saurashtra University, Rajkot on 31st July, 2017. Woodward–Fischer rules are several sets of empirically derived rules which attempt to predict the wavelength of the absorption maximum (λmax) in an ultraviolet–visible spectrum of a given compounds. At the end of session, students were able to calculate λmax of five different compounds by themselves.
