I deem it a privilege to give a brief account of myself to your esteemed institution. Acquisition of in depth knowledge in the fundamental areas has always been my primary objective and I have always intended to build this theoretical foundation by taking up the most exciting and challenging assignments by proving myself as University Topper in Under Graduation. Through out my education I have inculcated the habit of looking for ways and means to apply and use what ever I have learnt.
It is perhaps this bent of mind that led me to choose a career in Pharmacy and I got myself enrolled in the Bachelors in Pharmacy Program at K. V. S. R Siddhartha College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Acharya Nagarjuna University, One of the Premier Institutes of Higher Learning Pharmacy in India. During my First year of under graduation, I was nominated as a volunteer for a Medical aid camp organized by Indian Pharmaceutical Association wherein Medicines were distributed amongst people who are poor and needy.
By virtue of that camp I had confronted with queries from patients like, why there are no tablets for Insulin? Why cancer cannot be cured completely by Drugs? Why drugs have adverse effects if they were to allay the suffering? These queries enkindled inquisitiveness in me to explore vistas of Pharmaceutical Research and in due course as I studied a comprehensive structured syllabus of my university covering all facets of pharmaceutical sciences, I discovered the areas in subject which would relate to the common suffering of people.
To lenify my aforementioned aspirations I had done my Industrial training as a part of my Bpharm curriculum in Quality Control and Research and Development divisions of Pharman Laboratories, Vijayawada, Wherein I insinuated myself into different areas of Research like Formulation R&D, Analytical Development, etc. which boosted my morale and added up to my knowledge. My Pragmatic approach towards solving the underlying problems in society was seemingly rational. The Well Framed syllabus of my university underscored by my committed hard work and dedication helped me in qualifying Graduate aptitude test (GATE-2005) with 91.
66 Percentile. This strong foundation paved the way for admission into Master’s in Shri Vishnu College of Pharmacy, Andhra University one of India’s top most post graduation offering pharmacy colleges. My diligent work, strong fundamental knowledge and inclination towards research paved a path to get admission, for my dissertation work, into India’s Premier Research Institute and Centre for Excellence, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, where I got the opportunity to work with IICT’s Scientists along with the state-of–the art R&D Facilities.
I am doing my dissertation work on Nanoemulsions for Transdermal Delivery at Pharmacology Division, India Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad. I was also involved in various Research Projects of International repute and in turn accomplish the objective of my joining as Project Trainee and to contribute to the existing field. During my Tenure as Project Trainee at IICT I was first introduced to various Sophisticated Scientific Equipment required for Research like HPLC, LC-MS, NMR, TGA, DSC, IR, Zeta sizer etc.
My Research work has helped me in acquiring a firm footing in topics such as Novel Drug Delivery Systems, Biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics, Dosage form Design Parameters and bio-conjugate chemistry. I would prefer to join in your school on an account of its excellent research facilities combined with distinguished and dedicated faculty. My admission into your esteemed institution is of paramount importance for my career. With my theoretical knowledge, practical skills coupled with my dedication and sincerity, I am well equipped to meet your expectations.
I am confident that, if admitted, I would surely satisfy your expectations. My admission into your university will help me in my endeavor and I hope I will be favorably considered for doctoral program with a possible financial assistance. I am confident that at a university like yours with its abundant facilities I would be able to supplement my main stream Pharmacy with adequate exposure to related fields and technologies. I would eagerly look forward for being amongst your distinguished academic community. Ch. Raghavendra
