Introduction
      The Institute of Pharmaceutical Education is established based on Pharmaceutics discipline. It has achieved predominant development and becomes a scientific research center for Drug Preparations and Pharmaceutical Engineering. Also it takes the responsibility to cultivate senior special persons in pharmaceutics. Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council approved Master's Degree program in 1991 and Doctor’s degree program in 2004. Now the Institute has 11 faculties including 5 professors, 5 associate professors and 1 lecturer. The members serve as National Drug Research Institute review committee experts, Chinese Pharmaceutical Association Pharmaceutical Professional Committee, associate editor or editor of "Pharmaceutical Journal", "Journal of Chinese Medicine", "Modern Applied Pharmacy," "Journal of Pediatric Medicine" and other academic journals, and two were selected in “Zhejiang New Century 151 Talent Project”. The Institute is currently equipped with modern instruments reaching the price of over 1 million dollars.
