Tapan Kumar Giri was educated at Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, where he received pharmacy
degrees in B.Pharm, M.Pharm and a Ph.D. He has held academic posts in various pharmacy
institutes of North India and is currently working as an Assistant Professor in Pharmaceutical
Technology at the NSHM College of Pharmaceutical Technology, Kolkata, India. His main research
interests are formulation development and drug delivery. He has mentored over 20 Master’s students.
He has published around 60 research papers, 7 book chapters and 2 pharmacy books. He
has served as a guest editor for the Current Chemical Biology Journal, Bentham Science. He has
received the prestigious highly cited article award from Elsevier as well as the teacher of the year
2017 award from Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology, West Bengal, India.
Bijaya Ghosh has been teaching for the last 30 years and has taught pharmacy to undergraduates
and graduate students in some of the premier institutions of North and South India. Currently she is
working as a Professor in Pharmaceutics at NSHM College of Pharmaceutical Technology, Kolkata.
She received her B.Pharm, M.Pharm and Ph.D. degrees from Jadavpur University in the years 1983,
1986 and 1994, respectively. She has authored 2 pharmacy text books and has published some
30 research papers in national and international journals. Her research interests involve various
streams of novel drug delivery like sustaining drug release, passive and iontophoretic drug delivery
and nanobiotechnology. Ever interested in experimenting with new concepts, currently she is working
on the reverse iontophoretic extraction of small molecules for therapeutic drug monitoring.
