Anindit Chhibber is pursuing his PhD in Pharmacotherapy at the Department of Pharmacotherapy
“We are born weak, we need strength; helpless, we need aid; foolish, we need reason. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man’s estate, is the gift of education”. This quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau perfectly sums up the paramount role of education in my life. My parents, belonging to a middle-class family, left no stone unturned in providing me this “gift of education”. By the end of my schooling, I developed a tenacious interest in learning more about biological sciences. This interest took me to an undergraduate experience at Kurukshetra University where I choose to specialize in the field of biotechnology.
Aditi is a pharmacist by training and is a current PhD student at the department of Pharmacotherapy.
Aditi completed her bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy, from S.N.D.T University, Mumbai, India and her master’s in Pharmacy Administration from St. John’s University, New York. Her master’s research focused on assessing economic burden, medical expenditures, and healthcare resource utilization for patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disorders. She also has experience conducting discrete choice experiments/patient preference studies for celiac disease patients. Her desire and passion to strengthen her understanding about the field of HEOR made her pursue the doctoral training.
Aditi’s PhD research primarily focuses on pancreatic cancer. As part of her dissertation work, she is conducting a health economic evaluation of different chemotherapy treatment regimens for pancreatic cancer. She is interested in expanding her knowledge and conducting more value-based research. The department of Pharmacotherapy also helps provide her with hands on experience, through industry sponsored project in oncology. Her PhD training has made her more skilled and experienced in conducting real world evidence studies, health outcomes research, and pharmacoeconomic analysis. Apart from the scientific HEOR training, she has learnt important skills such as time management, effective communication, strategic and critical thinking.
This premier research and teaching facility is connected to the existing School of Pharmacy by an impressive four-story atrium. The atrium itself houses elevators, connections between buildings at each level and a variety of gathering spaces.
Two thirds of the new building is devoted to laboratories, animal facilities, support spaces and office/conference room clusters associated with particular research emphases. The remainder houses computer and conference space associated with non-laboratory research.
Several on campus housing options are available for Graduate Students at the University.
The Office of Housing & Residential Education manages residence halls and apartments available for both single and married graduate students. Housing is available for graduate students in Shorline Ridge, Benchmark Plaza, Sage Point and Officer's Circle.
