The department of Pharmacology is concerned with the aspects of education and research activities involving effects of drugs on living organisms in respect to chemical nature, origin (natural or synthetic), which affects a biological system. Pharmacology may involve how organisms handle drugs, mechanism of drug action, drug toxicity, the use of drugs as probes to demarcate biological processes in health and disease, identification of new targets for drug action, and the design and development of new drugs. These investigations can occur at the molecular, sub cellular, cellular, tissue or whole organism level. Pharmacology is an interdisciplinary discipline employing investigational approaches that may include biochemistry, physiology, immunology, molecular biology, genetics and cell biology. Department of Pharmacology addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
