Faculty of Pharmacy and Drug Technology
The faculty’s research plan is derived from the five-year research plan of the University and is consistent with the Egypt strategy for Sustainable Development (Egypt Vision 2030) and the Executive Proposal for the National strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI-EGY 2030).
These directions are based on two complementary key tracks:
Creating a stimulating and supportive environment for excellence and innovation in scientific research, establishing the development of a comprehensive community and the production of new knowledge that achieves international leadership. The desired consecutive axes are:
Axis I: Strategic objective: Supporting and developing human resources and developing infrastructure to promote scientific research.
Axis II: Strategic objective: Improving the amplitude of scientific research (basic, interdisciplinary, future research and social) to achieve a high level of excellence that contributes to achieving regional and international leadership.
Axis III: Strategic objective: Funding scientific research and linking it to the industry and development plans and satisfy society needs, and strengthen partnership with different sectors.
Harnessing knowledge and leveraging technology to contribute to economic and social development.
The desired axes are:
Axis I: Health
Strategic objective: A healthy and safe life for all citizens for prosperity, well-being, happiness as well as social and economic development.
Axis II: Environment
Strategic objective: Continuous improvement of quality of life, raising awareness about protecting nature and reducing the impact of climate change aiming to provide a clean, safe and sustainable environment for future generations and stimulating the green economy.
Axis III: Technological Applications and Future Sciences
Strategic objective: Research and development of interdisciplinary and future sciences and technologies aiming to be in readiness for the future. In order to achieve that, the research directions of the faculty can be determinedIn the following:
- Discovery and formulation of active agents (natural /synthetic) in novel delivery system and the use of modern techniques that help in the evaluation, determination their theranostic efficacy in addition to the treatment of chronic, endemic, epidemic diseases and tumors.
- Restorative knowledge of the newly widespread diseases, raise the community health awareness and study the economic and social effects of these diseases.
- Extensive use of green chemistry to provide a clean, safe and sustainable environment for future generations.
- Use of targeted drugs based on modern applied technology techniques such as nanotechnology, genetic engineering and stem cells in the treatment of diseases.
- Strengthen community partnership with different health sectors and encourage pharmaceutical companies with scientific research to solve the pharmaceutical industrial problems using modern techniques.
Faculty of Engineering and Technology
The faculty’s research plan aims to support scientific research and innovation which is based on developing the system and quality of the scientific research according to the national and international strategies for science, technology and innovation. In addition, to focusing on the interest in activating the principles of sustainability and productive thinking, enhancing current and potential areas of research excellence, developing programs for graduate studies, enhancing scientific research skills, developing research laboratories, and providing material resources.
Thus, these resources are used to support researchers for scientific competition, creativity and innovation, and marketing the outputs of scientific research by strengthening international cooperation and effective partnership with local and international institutions.
