Pharmacology is the science of drug action on biological systems. In its entirety, pharmacology embraces knowledge of the sources, chemical properties, biological effects and therapeutic uses of drugs. It is a science that is basic not only to medicine, but also to pharmacy, nursing, dentistry and veterinary medicine.

Pharmacological studies range from those that examine the effects of chemical agents on subcellular mechanisms, to those that deal with the potential hazards of pesticides and herbicides, to those that focus on the treatment and prevention of major diseases with drug therapy. Integrating knowledge in many related scientific disciplines, pharmacology offers a unique perspective to solving drug, hormone, and chemical-related problems as they impinge on human health. As it unlocks the mysteries of drug actions, discovers new therapies, and develops new medicinal products, pharmacology inevitably touches all our lives.

The pharmacology and physiology laboratories are well equipped with facilities for research in areas like neuropharmacology, cardiovascular, antihyperlipidemic, antiasthmatic studies, anti-inflammatory etc. The department is actively involved in the research projects and the research papers are published in the National and International journals of repute. Department of Pharmacology has well equipped ‘Animal House’ registered under CPCSEA, New Delhi.
