Department of Pharmacology
“To impart knowledge, skills and attitudes to the students so that they can prescribe drugs safely, effectively and maintain competency in professional life.”
Pharmacology is the scientific study of the effects of drugs and chemicals on living organisms where a drug can be broadly defined as any chemical substance, natural or synthetic, which affects a biological system. Identification and validation of new targets for drug action, and the design and development of new drugs to prevent, treat and cure diseases also comes under Pharmacology.
Translational Medicine to use new knowledge in clinical practice, Preclinical studies in animals, Clinical trials, Evidence based Medicine, Pharmacogenomics etc.to improve human health and longevity are all critical components in the development of modern ‘personalized medicine’, a concept based on individual patient response or predicted risk of disease.
Pharmacologists require sound basic knowledge of physiology, biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology upon which to build their specialized knowledge and experimental
approaches for the investigation of novel aspects of drug action.
This interdisciplinary knowledge offers pharmacologists a unique perspective on a wide range of biomedical issues.

Set-up an intravenous drip and adjust the drip rate according to required dosage. calculate the drug dosage using appropriate formulae for an individual patient. administer the required dose of different drug formulations using appropriate devices and techniques (e.g., hypodermic syringes, inhalers, transdermal patches etc.) Advice and interpret the therapeutic monitoring reports of important drugs recognize and report adverse drug reactions to suitable authorities. analyze critically, drug promotional literature for proprietary preparations in terms of
