Pharmacy Laboratory Complex

The Department of Pharmacy of FAHS received financial assistance from the AHEAD project to extend the Senaka Bibile building to house a three storied laboratory complex. The total cost of the project was Rs. 92.7 million. The new pharmacy laboratory complex was ceremonially opened by Professor Upul B. Dissanayake, Vice Chancellor of the University of Peradeniya on the 30th of July 2021.

The laboratory component of the B.Pharm degree is about one third of the whole course. New three storied building is designed for several subspecialties which are essential to carry out lab-based training of the BPharm programme. Each floor can accommodate around 50 students comfortably at one time. This laboratory complex has three separate labs including a pharmaceutical chemistry lab, pharmaceutics lab, and pharmaceutical microbiology and biotechnology lab.
