Answer: Post Graduation in Pharmacy (M.Pharmacy) is the steady option for you. But M.Pharmacy with Intellectual Property Rights and Patents may not available in many institutions. NIPER (National Pharmaceutical Education and Research) is the highly reputed institute in this category and most likely to offer the related course mentioned by you.
Coming to recruitments at CCMB, the institute recruits candidates for scientist positions through direct open recruitment.Candidates should have Ph.D in the concerned specialization along with good publications preferably. CSIR is required for JRF and SRF project positions and also for Ph.D admissions.
