Pharmacology is one of the important subjects which deal with detailed study of drugs particularly their actions on living beings, organs or tissues. It includes allied topics like pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, therapeutics, toxicology, chemotherapy, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics and clinical pharmacy. Thus, Pharmacology is an important subject which connects pharmacy to medical sciences.

The undergraduate and post-graduate laboratory has excellent facilities and is equipped with sophisticated instruments, equipments and well maintained CPCSEA approved animal house. The equipments and instruments are used largely to study drug effects on isolated tissues/organs, whole animals, drug screening programs and evaluating drug effects both at cellular and molecular level. There are two recognized M.Pharm. guides.

The Department is also engaged in other professional activities such as:
a) Bioavailability / Bioequivalence studies on marketed medicinal products
