Articles published in International Journals

The University of Central Punjab is proud of Mr. Husnain Hamid, a final year student from the Faculty of Pharmacy who recently got the honour of having four of his research articles published in international journals in a short period of 20 days 

 with a commutative impact factor of 3.65.

Husnain’s work revolves around the use of various drugs and substances to control different diseases and the local pharmacist’s knowledge about them.

Speaking about his achievement in research publication Husnain attributed his success to his course instructors who not only imparted theoretical knowledge but also made sure their students made an effort to explore it in the real world. One particular teacher that Husnain feels extremely grateful towards is Mr. Irfan Bashir who guided him through each step of his research journey and also helped him pen it down clearly and concisely.

Mr. Hamid, has also been invited to review two manuscripts. A research conducted in Arizona, USA submitted to the Journal of Pharmacy Practice and the other one is a research carried out in Khathmandu, Nepal which IS being considered for publication in the journal Drugs & Therapy Perspectives.
