Pharmacology

Pharmacology is the study of how a drug affects a biological system and how the body responds to the drug. The discipline encompasses the sources, chemical properties, biological effects, and therapeutic uses of drugs.

Pharmacology is an integrative and a multidisciplinary science, encompassing a variety of knowledge from chemistry, Biochemistry, genetics, cell biology and molecular biology. It creates a comprehensive framework for understanding and treating a disease.

The Department has a well-equipped laboratory and Faculty rooms. The Department has a vibrant undergraduate teaching program catering to various aspects of Pharmacology. We help our students gain a thorough knowledge about medicine and equip them with the ability to understand the various routes of drug administration, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, adverse drug reactions, and pharmacotherapeutics.

Students understand the general principles of drugs action and able to select and prescribe suitable drugs according to the need of the patients. They are guided to use the drugs judiciously in the best interest of the patients. The Department also imbibes and encourages research attitudes in the undergraduates and helps them to undertake short term studentship research projects.
