CHANDIGARH: Professor Bhupinder Singh Bhoop University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS), Panjab University, has recently been bestowed upon with “Stat-Ease QbD Performance Award 2014” on the basis of his outstanding contribution and extensive research work on novel and nanostructured drug delivery systems using Quality by Design (QbD).
Conferment of this prestigious award was conveyed to him very recently through a communique by Mr Pat Whitcomb, Founder President, M/s Stat-Ease Inc., Minneapolis, USA. Besides the citation, the award carries a grant of "Premier Academic Status" to Prof Bhoop and his research group at Panjab University, Chandigarh, amounting to the complimentary provision of a perpetual license of the Design Expert® 9.0 software, five single-user annual licenses, and annual 10-seat network license for the purpose of academic research by his group, all worth the market price of US$ 7095. This status has been conferred by Stat-Ease earlier only once to the founders’ alma mater, the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA.
Considered to be a global pioneer in the development of novel and nanostructured drug delivery using Formulation by Design (FbD), i.e., a QbD-based paradigm, Prof Bhoop has earned till date more than 215 publications, 10 books, 4 patents and technology transfers of two marketed nano-based drug delivery products for serving the ailing patients. He has duly trained several hundreds of industrial scientists on QbD under his direct guidance through onsite training seminars & workshops via conferences - an unparalleled feat to the credit of any academic scientist.
