“This collaboration is very important as a huge need for research in Ayurvedic Pharmacy is now being realized.” – MD, Shree Dhanwantri Herbals

The School of Ayurvedic Pharmaceutical Sciences of Lovely Professional University and one of the leading Ayurvedic Pharma companies Shree Dhanwantri Herbals have collaborated to produce and promote Ayurvedic products not only in India but across the world. The said Pharma company is already producing and exporting dozens of herbal and Ayurvedic medicines to many countries. For a collaborative approach, LPU researchers will frame out a literature for the promotion of Ayurvedic products. This tie-up is also to strengthen academia-industry relations. The memorandum of Understanding has been signed by the Managing Director of Shree Dhanwantri Herbals Dr. J P Singh and LPU Sr Dean Dr. Monica Gulati. Director General Er HR Singla was also present on the occasion.

Thanking Dr Singh for reposing faith in the research conducted by LPU students and faculty members, LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal said, “Under this collaboration, LPU students will pursue important research projects to further enhance acceptability of herbal, Ayurvedic and nutraceutical products, as aloe-vera has already been identified and accepted the world over. LPU students will also create a literature in this regard to create awareness around the world about the many benefits of Ayurveda. Mr Mittal added that as per the needs of the global society and Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC), LPU students and faculty members have already researched together to get many patents applied for and published.

Dr Singh shared,“This collaboration is very important as a huge need for research in Ayurvedic Pharmacy is now being realized. There are more than 9000 Ayurvedic companies in India and the demand for Ayurvedic products is increasing day by day,not only in India but all across the world.  We realize that for the preparation and development of quality herbal formulations, there should be effective academia-industry interface to promote strenuous research in this direction. I am sure this tie-up will result in development of efficacious, safe, and cost effective Ayurvedic medicines.” Founded in 1952, Shree Dhanwantri Herbals aims to promote health through Ayurvedic practices, and to create a disease free and healthy society.
