Department of Pharmacology

MESSAGE FROM HOD

Pharmacology is the branch of pharmacy concerned with the study of drug action, in which a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (within the body) molecule which exerts a biochemical and/or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism. More specifically, it is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. If substances have medicinal properties, they are considered pharmaceuticals. The field encompasses drug composition and properties, synthesis and drug design, molecular and cellular mechanisms, organ/systems mechanisms, signal transduction/cellular communication, molecular diagnostics, interactions, toxicology, therapy, and medical applications and antipathogenic capabilities. The two main areas of pharmacology are pharmakodynamics and pharmacokinetics.

Mr. Gopesh has completed his M. Pharm. from RGPV, Bhopal. He has 4 years of teaching experience. His area of research interest is the anti-cancer potential of herbs. The experiments in this subject require the handling of animals. We have a wide range of instruments needed to demonstrate the effect of drug on the animals. Many regulatory bodies discourage the use of live animals in the laboratory. To comply with this, we have sophisticated software tools that simulate the effect of drugs on the live animals.
