I chose Pharma Science discipline because a Pharmacist is a true ambassador for promoting rational use of medicines in healthcare and I was always interested in this field of science which is related to Drug Discovery.
Dr Neetesh Jain

Dr Neetesh completed his B. Pharm from Technocrats Institute of Technology, Bhopal, in 2006. He completed his M. Pharm with specialization in Pharmacology from B.R. Nahata College of Pharmacy, Mandsaur, in 2008. He started his professional career by working as Assistant Professor in College of Pharmacy, IPS Academy, Indore, in 2008 and then moved on to join RNS Institute of Pharmaceutical Science & Research, Gwalior, in 2009. He joined Oriental University, Indore, in 2011 and has been associated with the Institution ever since. He currently works as Associate Professor & Head, Department of Pharmacology.

I wanted to join Clinical Research Organization (CRO) after my MPharm and it wasn’t in my plans initially to become an educator. But, due to the recession of 2008, I had to take up the career in education. However, as I love Pharma Science, I never compromised on my vision towards quality education and research.
