The University has been created with the vision to promote excellence in research and development in pharmaceutical sciences and allied sciences. The University has been through an act of Delhi Goverment in 2008, but could not be started due to certain unforseen circumstances.
I joined in College of Pharmacy situted in Pusa in August, 1976. We shifted in 1979-1980 academic year to Pushp Vihar. I was privileged to start M.Pharm Pharmacology and Pharmaceutics in 1979. I took over as Acting Principal on 1st April 1995 and gradually tried to do bring overall development of DIPSAR after getting converted from College of Pharmacy. During my long association with DIPSAR as Director upto 2011, I have been continuously involved in enhancing the research facilities in DIPSAR in order to make it an institute of international repute. I developed DIPSAR as a self-contained complex to house the pharmaceutical science university which included state-of-art gymnasium, sports complex, hostels, canteen, guest house, auditorium, lecture theatres, laboratories, library etc.
I joined in the position of Vice Chancellor in 2015 and started admisisons in various pharmacy courses and introduced physiotherapy course. New, in my current position as National Research Professor, I wish to take DPSRU to great heights The University will also focus on the national thrust research areas like drug discivery and devlopment in diabetes mellitus, anti-cancer, anti-obesity, anti-hypertension etc.
My deam to open a Pharmacy University has been fulfilled.
