We have included two more additional events compared to zonal events namely Poster presentation and Picsnovation, Dr. M.T. Chhabaria, Principal of L.M. Pharmacy College said. He added that this year we have included six events:
- Pharma modeling
- Poster presentation
Potentia is based on the state of debate and discussion between the participating teams on selected topic of recent advances in pharmaceutical field. Pharma modeling displays innovative models and explains the principles behind their models that may be in the working condition or just for the purpose of demonstration. The event of Pharmarecipe will teach you making suitable dosage form by using least number of ingredients within shorter period of time. It will help in appropriate patient friendly formulation design and administration.
In picsnovation, participants are supposed to take the working photographs of the live observations in the field of pharmaceutical sciences on the basis of the theme given by the techfest team. In my self-medicine participants have to present their own self as any drug they admire to be and have to speak on that specific drug briefly.
