Who are Pharmacists?
Pharmacists also known as chemist or druggists are healthcare professionals who practice in pharmacy, the field of heath science focusing on safe and effective medication use. A pharmacist is a member of the healthcare team directly involved with patient care.
Pharmacist undergo university level education to understand the biochemical mechanism an action of drug, drug uses therapeutic roles, side effects, potential drug interactions, and monitoring parameters. This is anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology and pharmacists interpret and communicate this specialized knowledge to patients physically and other health care providers.

Importance of IPR in Pharmacists
Intellectual property (IP) is the bedrock on which the development of new treatment and cures is built. IP is critical to improving patient care, spurring economic growth and strengthening an innovation economy. Without the protections of a strong, modern IP system, researchers may not have the ability to explore new areas of medical innovation and unearth the findings that will lead to the treatments and cures of tomorrow.
For the health of the industry and the people it serves, it is critical that all nations recognize the validity and importance of patent protection for the products of this industry. The defining characteristic of the international research-based pharmaceutical industry is its commitment to innovative, but expensive, R&D investment. This R&D would not be possible if the resulting products did not have the limited period of freedom from copying that U.S. and foreign patent laws provide.


Patent protection for the pharmaceutical industry
Without adequate and effective patent protection, the research-based pharmaceutical industry would not exist. Fortunately, the standards for protection of intellectual property in the United States, Europe, and Japan are, for the most part, adequate. In these regions, there is a mechanism for extending pharmaceutical patent terms to compensate in some measure for the years of effective patent life lost during the lengthy regulatory approval process.

Who is Pharmaceutical Analyst?
A Pharmaceutical analyst is patent Professionals who is typically involved in the area of pharmaceutical analysis evaluate the methods used by pharmaceutical companies and by the U.S. Pharmacopeia for their suitability to characterize the quality of drug products and ingredients. They also develop and disseminate new technologies and methods for characterizing the chemical and biological properties of drug ingredients and drug products. These scientists also support the regulatory and enforcement components of the FDA by conducting surveillance and investigational laboratory testing of drug products and ingredients.
A pharmaceutical Analyst is a person who:
• Understands technology
• Finds old technologies already known to public
• Draft application carefully
• Files application
• Convinces patent office for getting a patent
• Identifies economic asset
• Protects invention from counterfeits and fake products

Qualification for the Pharmaceutical Analyst
Graduate from the pharmaceutical profession along with the certification course in IPR are eligible for this profile.
