Pharmacology

Pharmacology is one of the core subjects of biomedical sciences, deals with the research, discovery, and characterization of chemicals which show biological effects and the elucidation of cellular and organismal function in relation to these chemicals. The subject involves elements of toxicology, biology, chemistry, and physiology, and is a broad scientific field applicable to many careers in the life sciences area. Pharmacology focus more on the research aspect of this science, teaching the student to investigate the effects of chemical compounds and to innovate ways of creating remedies to the many physical and mental ailments which affect people and animals. The two main areas of pharmacology are pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. Pharmacodynamics studies the effects of a drug on biological systems, and pharmacokinetics studies the effects of biological systems on a drug. In broad terms, pharmacodynamics discusses the chemicals with biological receptors, and pharmacokinetics discusses the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) of chemicals from the biological systems. Experimental pharmacology mainly deals with the drug screening studies using animals and isolated tissue preparations. The department is equipped with many modern equipments which are commonly used in the experimental pharmacology, like Eddy's hot plate, rota rod apparatus, pole climbing apparatus, electro-convulsiometer, Actophotomter etc. The department also maintains softwares which are commonly employed for experimental pharmacology training purpose. The department has a well maintained animal house with CPCSEA registration. The institution has a IAEC which comprises of experts and eminent personalities from various fields.
